Labor will be different (back labor is common), but it's no reason to not VBAC. I have a friend who has VBACd two posterior babies. I have another friend who VBAC a breech baby (baby turned in the middle of labor and no one realized it!). One issue I have run across is that posterior babies tend to want to bake longer since they're not always sitting down low to create that pressure on the cervix, so an impatient doctor might be an issue. There are a lot of positions you can do while in labor that can encourage a baby to turn. One of the worst things you can do is stay in bed, be on your back, or sit. It was the issue I had with DS because where I gave birth the nurses kept yelling at me that I had to stay in bed the whole time. What I wanted to do was was stick my butt up in the air and my head down, which ironically is one of the positions that helps posterior babies turn. Thankfully I've moved and I'm not going to a backwards hospital this time.
