  • It called a "version" and hurts and they do it for breech babies and it often does not work and can cause early labor or the baby can turn back.

  • getting on hands and knees for a while can relieve a lot of the back labor pain, and they sometimes turn around on their own in that position too.

    as far as I'm aware, there is no procedure to actually try to turn baby from posterior, it's just something you have to deal with if it happens
