What to Expect

Pregnancy is an exciting time. You will be carrying your child inside you for nine months. This can put a strain on you.

Webster Technique Explained

Babies can get in the breech position even after 34-weeks. There are a number of reasons this could happen, the main reason is stress and torque on the uterus because of the pelvis being misaligned.

As your pregnancy progresses, a hormone known as relaxin is released. The purpose of the hormone is to cause the ligaments to soften and stretch. This is what allows your pelvis to spread to create room for the birth of the baby. However, your pelvis can also get out of alignment during this time.

The Webster technique, named after Dr. Larry Webster, is used to address intrauterine constraint. The Webster technique is known to be far less invasive than the typical obstetric solution.

Benefits of the Webster Technique

The main aim of the technique is to realign the pelvis because a pelvis that is out of alignment can cause the baby not to move. Here are just a few of the benefits:

    • Helps the baby have room to turn
    • Reduces the chances of having a cesarean section
    • Aids in faster recovery after birth as compared to c-section births

Is the Webster Technique Safe?

The technique is very safe, and it is effective. It is not a baby turning technique, so there is no direct external force applied to the baby. It is also performed gently.

Chiropractic care is very helpful during pregnancy for many reasons other than breech birth. If you would like to know more about how the Webster Technique or the benefits of chiropractic care for pregnancy, be sure to give us a call at (716) 580-3577.
