My son was facing backwards when I was pregnant. It is safe for delivery, but unfortunately, it was intense back labor, and his shoulders were caught up on my pelvic bone, causing me to have a c-section after 7 hours of labor. It is more common for babies to be facing backwards or back/side, presumably the baby's back is to your front. This is also much easier when you are in labor. I am not sure why the previous answerer had such a hard time but it was not because the baby was facing backwards.
