When it comes time for childbirth, the breech position can pose a serious problem
Though there are multiple sub-types of breech positioning, the term essentially refers to a baby that presents before childbirth with a feetfirst or bottomfirst position, rather than head first. Occurring in 3-4% of pregnancies, breech is known to cause many complications during childbirth and often involves surgical intervention to protect both mother and child. Fortunately there is a technique that is very effective for moving the child into a fetal position more conducive to childbirth: the Webster technique.
What can I do if my baby is in breech?
Fetal positioning can be influenced by chiropractic. The Webster Technique utilizes specific adjustments to align the spine through the pelvic region, reduce intrauterine restraint and help encourage the baby to move into a healthy position for birth. By alleviating nerve compression, we facilitate smooth nervous system functioning throughout the spine and body, and contribute to the proper alignment of the pelvic muscles and ligaments.
