As a prospective mother enters into the later phases of pregnancy, a properly aligned pelvis and sacrum is a key to keeping her immune system operating efficiently while allowing plenty of room for the baby to develop healthily; it is also beneficial in preventing dystocia, as discussed in my previous blog. At Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center, we want to give you every advantage in having a short, easy labor, free of complications or surgical intervention.
Correcting the position of a baby in breech is the first step in paving the runway for a smooth delivery. To correct the breech positioning, we use the Webster Technique, a method that is focused on reducing stress to uterus-supporting ligaments, maximizing the space available to the baby to maneuver into the proper, maneuver into the proper, head-first position. The uterus is held within the abdomen in a state of balance, supported by ligaments that become stretched tight during the growth of the stomach during pregnancy. Not only does this cause the mother pain, but it also restricts the potential for maneuverability of the baby: overly tight ligaments can cause the baby to stay in breech position as labor approaches. Manual adjustments are focused on realigning the pelvis and sacrum, and reducing the tension and tightness of the ligaments supporting the uterus. This creates optimal space for the baby to move itself into the correct position for delivery.
