It's on my notes from last mw appt.
I know ceph is head down but not sure what roa means? Does it mean baby is back to back perhaps?

right occiput anterior - not back to back but back to your tummy and back of the head slightly to your right - DC1 was ROA and DC2 OA - both shortish not horrible labours.

Roa - right occiput anterior : spine facing forwards with spine of the right of your bump

OP is back to back
