I'm curious because apperantly my baby is in ROA position so her back is on my right side and she's facing my left side. The midwife says this usually means for an extremely fast labor but an EXTREMELY intense one because you still do the same amount of work just in a shorter span. So I got curious about other women and their labor experiences and babies positioning.
Yeah she said it was quicker but no easier because of how intense it is. She's already engaged I guess so they don't think she'll be moving. She's also consistently been in that position. Makes me kinda nervous. She said I wont have that nice warming up labor where you kinda work into it but i'll have a BAM full blown labor kinda thing.
You have every reason to be, it will start all of a sudden and won't stop until delivery is over. She's right again, it will be like wham and your in full blown active labor
Your midwife is right, it is VERY VERY intense the entire time in labor. That's the position my youngest daughter was in, took a little over 5 hrs to deliver
That certainly makes sense, breach babies are hardly ever delivered "normally" though it is possible it's far more hard and risky.
I'm not a father but my nephew was in "Breach-position" initially, he was eventually C-sectioned birthed.
My oldest daughter her back was to my belly, 14 hours of labor but much much less intense
