By definition the Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that
reduces interference to the nerve system and balances maternal pelvic muscles and ligaments.
This in turn reduces torsion in the uterus, a cause of intra-uterine constraint of the baby and
allows for optimal fetal positioning in preparation for birth. Dr. Thompson is Webster certified
by the ICPA and has years of experience working with women with breech babies.
When misalignments occur in your pelvis they may cause the uterus to twist and pull,
and this can cause a tightening of the muscles of the uterine wall. When this happens
your baby can no longer move and becomes stuck in the wrong or unnatural position.
This position may cause difficulty during delivery and could result in your baby having to
be delivered by c-section.
It is my desire to correct the misalignment in your pelvis thus relaxing the uterine wall
and allowing your baby to naturally move into position for a quality labor and delivery.
However, this isn’t where my responsibility to you or your baby ends.
While in this unnatural position, your baby’s spine is being forced into an unnatural
position as well and this may have resulted in misalignments that can manifest as a
variety of common childhood disorders such as colic, reflux, chronic ear infections,
constipation, torticollis, etc. This is why I recommend all of my pregnant patients bring
their baby in for an evaluation following delivery.
