How Webster’s Technique Can Help Your Delivery

By

Bringing a child into the world is a beautiful thing, but it does cause a lot of changes to occur in the body. These changes can sometimes bring pain and discomfort. Chiropractic care is a proven, safe way to manage lower back pain and sciatica that often comes with the pressure of carrying a baby for 9 months. Receiving care throughout your pregnancy could help you manage these changes to your body and the strain the extra weight puts on your muscles and spine. But that’s not the only way chiropractic care can make a big difference during your pregnancy.

Webster Technique for a Safer Birth

When a baby is in a breeched position with their bottom in the position to be birthed first, the mother and child could face a high-risk delivery and often times a mandatory cesarean section. This is common in 3-5% of pregnancies. The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic adjustment that is made to help a late-term pregnant woman whose baby is in the breached position. The doctor can safely manipulate the position of the baby to the proper delivery position.

Essentially, the Webster Technique adjusts the sacrum and relieves tension that is preventing the baby from moving into the proper position. Studies have shown that when the Webster Technique was employed early enough before delivery, 92% of patients were successfully manipulated into the correct position. This allows mothers to pursue a natural, low-risk birth.
