The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis
and correction of imbalances in the pelvis. The goal is to restore normal physiological function to the pelvic muscles,
ligaments, and joints during pregnancy. This allows the baby to naturally and comfortably assume their optimal position
in preparation for birth.
The Webster Technique can be extremely
beneficial in preparing your body for labor and pushing. Some of the benefits are reduced labor times, reduced pain
during labor, and decreased occurrences of dystocia, or difficult labor. The technique is gentle and safe for both mother
and baby. Dr. Jaffe is certified in the Webster Technique through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
Additionally, she is a certified Spinning Babies Aware Practitioner. Please visit the following links to learn more:
