Posterior cervix in labour???

Just wondering if any Midwifes can explain or anyone been through anything similar.

With my son I had been having regular strong contractions for a few hours and when in hospital told that my cervix was high and posterior. The midwife said it was strange as clearly in labour and sent me for a walk. An hour later it was four centimetres and son born four hours after this. From what I googled it's not supposed to be posterior in labour and am interested to get my head around this before I have next baby in around ten weeks time just in case I have same again

Mine was slightly posterior and I was 5cm, I wasn't told that it was unusual. Midwife just said it was posterior and baby needed to come down a little more, then she pottered off to run the pool for me. I was ready to push 90 mins later smile

Ah ok that makes me feel better smile

When I was checked I was made to feel a bit like I shouldn't really be in labour with a high posterior cervix but midwife was nice and believed I was so it was fine. Guess will just have to see what this time brings x

I'm a midwife. High and posterior is not a problem in earlier labour smile As the baby's head comes down further it sorts itself out! Would be easier for me to explain with a diagram (which I do in antenatal classes!). But just wanted to reassure you it's not abnormal and will have no bearing on this delivery smile
