It all starts in pregnancy!  Sacral misalignment causes the tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments.  It is these tense muscles and ligaments and their constraining effect on the uterus which prevents the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible position for birth. The Webster Technique is defined as a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces interference to the nerve system and facilitates biomechanical balance in pelvic structures, muscles and ligaments. This has been shown to reduce the effects of intrauterine constraint, allowing the baby to get into the best possible position for birth.

It is strongly recommended by the ICPA instructors of this technique that this specific analysis and adjustment of the sacrum be used throughout pregnancy, to detect imbalance and optimize pelvic biomechanics in preparation for safer, easier births. Because of the effect the chiropractic adjustment has on all body functions by reducing nerve system stress, pregnant mothers should have their spines checked regularly throughout pregnancy, optimizing health benefits for both the mother and baby.

So, in a nut shell, getting adjusted regularly throughout the pregnancy can help the mother’s pelvis prepare for birth and allow the baby it be in the best possible position for birth.  Aside from theses obvious benefits, the expectant mother is usually getting quite uncomfortable is the later stages of the pregnancy and routine spinal adjustments can help ease the normal pains associated with pregnancy such as low back pain, sciatica (numbness or shooting pains in the legs) and  mid-back pain just to name a few.
