Pregnancy Q&As

    My baby is breech. Is it true she might flip with the Webster technique?

    The Webster technique is a chiropractic method that was developed to help the fetus move freely–and it can be used to prevent and convert breech-birthing positions.

    The technique tends to be most effective when used earlier in pregnancy, but it’s never too late to try. (The Webster technique has been successful in turning a breech baby as late as 39 weeks.)  

    A chiropractor trained in the technique can assess your situation to determine whether there are imbalances in the bones, ligaments and muscles in your pelvis that may be causing a breech position. If these imbalances are found, your chiropractor will then use chiropractic adjustments to restore balance, which may give your baby the room she needs to flip.
