Setting You Up for a Successful Delivery

Dr. Cathys familyWhen it’s time to give birth, you can feel confident that with your pelvis aligned and mobile, your baby can come into this world as easily as possible. With you in better health, your baby will have less constraint in the womb.

As a mom of three, Dr. Cathy feels fortunate to have had healthy pregnancies and deliveries. Her third child, however, turned into the breech position during week 39, and the midwives said the baby wouldn’t be able to turn into the correct position for delivery.

Dr. Cathy, educated in prenatal chiropractic, knew about the Webster Technique and what it had done for women. She called Dr. Larry Webster, the developer of the technique, and got his advice, passing it on to her chiropractor.

After three days of using the Webster Technique, the baby turned around, and I delivered within four and a half hours. The midwives were amazed, and I started to get many referrals from them.

The Webster Technique

Many women seek out Dr. Cathy for care during their pregnancy and they are particularly interested in the Webster Technique. If the mother’s pelvis is out of alignment, the ligaments that connect the pelvis to the uterus increase their tension and this can result in a distortion to the baby’s environment. For the baby, the walls of the uterus tighten with the mother’s pelvic imbalance and this can become like tight bedsheets, restricting the baby’s movement. Chiropractic adjustments to the mother’s pelvis help release tension to the ligaments and uterus which allows the baby to move freely and assume the best possible position for birth. Balancing and improving the mobility of the mother’s pelvic bones, muscles and ligaments may help optimize the pregnancy and birth.
