Posterior is the normal position for the cervix. It usually becomes more anterior as labour progresses, because of the way in which it is opening up. Very rarely, a cervix will remain in a posterior position throughout labour, although it dilates normally. If you have a very unfavourable cervix prior to labour, this may mean that labour will be longer, and there is an increased likelihood of a caesarean. However, an unfavourable cervix would be one that is not only posterior in position, but also uneffaced (long), hard and not at all dilated, whereas yours was already 1cm dilated.
