Webster technique breech

I'm in 37th week found out that baby is still breech. Sideways. Will the Webster technique fix the babys head down? Who should I see in that case? I don't see chiropractors in India

Its unfortunate that you are dealing with the problem.

Number of breech presentation of baby is 3 - 5 % of all delivery. Out of which majority will have normal development.

Webster (baby spinning) technique are generally performed by well experienced gynaecologist / obstetrician. But there are chances of umbilical cord damage.

External cephalic version (if applicable) is safe alternative.

Be prepared for emergency cesarean for both types.

Consult your gynaecologist or obstetrician who could advise/guide you better.

Hope this helps,
I would suggest you see gynaecologist urgently.

if you have any more questions about this, please do not hesitate to ask me.
