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.

It should be fine to pull it backwards.

Lobsters can swim both forward and backwards. They swim backwards when they are facing their prey. If the lobster were to turn around and swim away they would be vulnerable to their prey. So by keeping their claws out and facing their prey they can defend themselves.

There are several marsupials with backwards-facing pouches. They include:wombatkoalaGreater bilbyplanigalequollsome species of phascogale also have a backwards facing pouch

The backwards-facing pouch is useful to burrowing animals because it means that, when the female digs, the dirt does not fly into the pouch. The joey is thus protected.

He had two faces on his head. One facing forwards and one facing backwards.
