Webster's Technique Pregnant women with 3rd tri breech are almost invariably offered a C-section and/or external cephalic version.
Increasingly, women are resorting to alternative care perhaps in an effort to regain control in the decision process.
Chiropractors utilize the Webster's Technique in turning breech babies... Has been found to be very effective when intrauterine constraint keeps the baby from its best possible position for birth.
Constraint is usually due to mother's musculoskeletal factors and imbalances.
Imbalances that occur in pelvic structures, muscles and ligaments.
Other Alternatives for Intrauterine Constraint include: Moxibustion
Fetal acoustic stimulation
