Chiropractic in pregnancy (Webster Technique)

Anyone ever had this chiropractic method during pregnancy? Did you find it helped during pregnancy or labor? My midwife is recommending it, but I don't know much about it at all, but have heard that it makes for easier births...anyone have insight?

My babe was breech at 36 weeks, and with 2 weeks of chiropractic care 3 times a week, he flipped! It was great! I was so glad not to have to have a c cection or a breech delivery. It also made me less sore from all that extra weight.

I had it and it also worked for turning my breech DS! Unfortunately, we had to stop going when my car broke down (right after he flipped), so he was still somewhat posterior, and I did have a long labor. But it all went well, much better than if he had remained breech! (I do think he would have gotten into position if I had been able to continue with it, but I didn't know that at the time...oops!) I would definitely recommend it!

Re: Chiropractic in pregnancy (Webster Technique)

SIL and BIL are chiros and ooooooooh and aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah does it feel good to be treated when pregnant! DS got "in position" fairly early and I really think it was from the adjustments. When he would wriggle into a place that was uncomfortable for me (like when his foot was firmly in my rib!!!) they could would adjust what they could and it would provide relief.

FYI if you are going to have them do the Webster on you, ask if they have done it first hand and what the outcome was. When I asked SIL about it she said that a lot of chiros have seen it done or practiced it in school, but have never actually performed it.

There are actually two chiros in town that specialize in it.

I'm not sure what our chiro does, but he's gentle and never fully manipulates the spine. He just adjusts where you need it. I can tell him where that is before he even touches me! He is invaluable!

Re: Chiropractic in pregnancy (Webster Technique)

webster is awesome!!! can't say enough good things about it. Ask the chiros who "specialize" in it if they have a lot of experience with pregnancy, those who claim they "specialize" could have learned it at a weekend seminar or via few lectures in chiro school. Those who actually are experts in pregnancy and pediatrics take a 3 year post grad training program that really makes them an expert...and once they have passed the licensing they have a DICCP after their name . Not saying that yours aren't good just wanted to you know that anyone can call themselves a specialist and as long as they never injury anyone and get sued they will never be called out on what they actually mean by calling themselves a specialist. There is a list of DICCP's (pedo & preggo chiro specialists) go to icpa4kids.com.

Though not all chiros that are DICCP's are on that list.

Re: Chiropractic in pregnancy (Webster Technique)

The particualr one that I'm looking into only does pediatric and pregnancy. My friend went to her and she said she has a table that has a hole in it for your belly and stands you up on end to get off rather than have you roll off the table and such. And my midwife recommended her too, so I'm assuming that my midwife has sent several mamas to her in the past. I'll have to look and se if she has DICCP after her name.
