A common opinion seemed to be that there really wasn't much that you could do to turn a posterior baby and it probably won't matter. Anna ended up turning during my labor at some point. I don't know when, but I remember checking her position at one point and she was still posterior, but my midwife said she came out facing the correct way.
Ditto! My daughter was born posterior... actually, she started turning in the birth canal and came out facing towards the side. The back labor was KILLER but nothing you can't get through and it definitely shouldn't end your hopes of having a water birth... it didn't for me.
