Can the Webster Technique work to turn a breech baby?

This technique helps to create space around the uterus giving the baby ample room to turn and optimizes the opportunity to get in the proper position for birth. This technique has proven it facilitates the correct environment to allow the birthing process to proceed as it naturally was created to.

According to research, the Webster Technique has a success rate of 85% when turning a breech baby, compared to an external cephalic version (ECV) that experiences only a 35% success rate.

 

Webster Technique helps the S1 joints. Where are the S1 joints located?

The S1 joints make up the triangular shaped bone at the bottom of the spine, known as the sacrum. These joints connect the spine to the pelvis.
