Breech Baby Presentation And The Webster Technique

Breech Baby at 35 Weeks?

The Webster Technique: A Natural Option For A Safer, Easier Pregnancy

What Are the Options For A Breech Baby At 35 Weeks?

breech baby diagramA breech baby at 35 weeks means a presentation, at the 35 week point of pregnancy, when the baby about to be born is being delivered feet first rather than the more usual head first orientation.

The following article describes a chiropractic protocol designed to help moms in these situations have an easier safer delivery.

Breech baby deliveries represents around 4% of presentations. Until 40 years ago breech vaginal deliveries were fairly normal until medical facilities in the US called a halt on training in breech delivery methods, instead opting for C-section deliveries.

Recent studies show that there is no more risk in breech deliveries than C-section deliveries, but the knowledge base to perform the breech delivery is now virtually lost.

With chiropractic care, there is a protocol called The Webster Technique which has been shown in studies to help mom have a safer, easier birth. It was developed by Dr. Larry Webster who was the founder and defender of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.

Whilst the Webster technique has historically been known as a method of turning a breech baby naturally – the great news for mom is that it is now been shown to help ALL pregnant mothers have easier, safer pregnancies.

A video showing this safe, gentle and non-invasive protocol is available below:

“The Webster protocol is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved.”

So, if you are pregnant, it would make sense to use a Webster-trained chiropractor as part of your birthing preparations.
