Anyone know what Dorso-Posterior means?


Had a scan today (32+1) and it says baby's presentation is cephalic dorso-posterior. I know cephalic means he is head down, but wasn't sure about dorso-posterior. From what I understood looking at the scan he was positioned with his spine running down my left hand side, so does dorso-posterior mean he's side on, rather than back to back or back to front?

Ta! xx


  • Hello!

    I did a google but can't find much in reference to dorsal posterior... but I did gather from what I read that cephalic posterior means baby is head down but back to back. I might not be right tho!

    Sorry not to help more!
