The chiropractor’s ability to realign and, in many cases, relax the ligaments and muscles in your pelvis has led to what is now known as The Webster Technique, a method that helps breech babies to turn themselves, naturally. The technique aligns and opens the pelvis to give the baby the room it needs to get into a better position for birth.
This technique was discovered by Dr. Larry Webster (1937-1997), founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. Dr. Blaser trained with Dr. Webster in the years from 1988-1992 and has been using the Webster Technique ever since. Dr. Webster discovered that when a mother sought care where her baby was in a breech position, the restoration of pelvic neurobiomechanics with this adjustment frequently aided in optimal fetal positioning. Since the use of this technique, there have been numerous reports of high success rates in the baby turning to the normal vertex position (baby’s head pointing downwards towards birth canal). It has also been successfully used in women whose babies present transverse and posterior as well. It has also been successfully used with twins. Any position of the baby other than the normal position may indicate the presence of a sacral subluxation and therefore cause constraint in the uterus.
