Webster Intrauterine Constraint Technique

Most of the referrals I receive from OB’s and Midwives are for this technique.  This is used when a baby is not laying in the optimal position, which is head down.   The baby may be transverse, posterior (face up) or bottom down(breech).  The Webster Intrauterine Constraint technique is a technique that I use to balance the pelvis and sacrum.  If there is any tightness in the muscles, tendons and ligaments that are in the pelvic or abdominal region, the baby will lay in a nonoptimal way.  I don’t actually turn the baby, like an external version, I release any restriction in the pelvis and abdomen and allow the baby to turn his/herself.  This is a very safe technique and one of my most popular. I have had great success using it !  I also incorporate a couple other techniques that I have also found to work and teach the husbands some tricks they can use at home to help their wife.

    My baby is due october 12 i am exactly 29 weeks and i went to the doctor today for my monthly check up and my doctor told me that my baby is breech her bottom is facing down. He told me that I'm going to have to get a c section, which i dont want. Is there anything he can do to prevent me from having one or what would i have to do? Please let me know as soon as possible this is my first baby and i dont want a c- section i am really freaking out. Thank you

      Janet, Congratulations on your first pregnancy ! I understand your concern about having a c-section. You still have time to change the babies position. Usually the baby lies breech because you have some tight muscles or ligaments and they have to lay around it. Find a pediatric chiropractor in your area immediately and they will work on your pelvis/sacrum to loosen any restrictions that may be causing your baby to lay in that position. or is where you will find pediatric chiropractors. DICCP's are board certified and have the most training. Good luck and keep me posted ! Dr. Nancy
