I have good news for you also!! My daughter turned during labour and came our back to back and she was looking up! I had her at home with no pain relief so it can be done, try not to panic. I actually think it helped that I didnt know that she was in such an awkwark position as I would have worried unnecessarily and would have got it into my mind that I couldn't do it!
I was pushing for quite a long time and did tear and had to be stitched but it honestly wasn't that bad.
Definetely don't assume that it will be horrific because it wont necessarily, and plenty of births are traumatic when babies are in the perfect position anyway.
There is still a chance that baby will turn before or even during labour so try not to worry about it too much, I can honestly hand on heart tell you that it really wasn't too bad!!
