Can Chiropractic Care Help Turn a Breech Baby?

During pregnancy, many expectant mothers may face the concern of a breech presentation, where the baby's position is bottom or feet-down rather than head-down. This can raise worries about delivery complications. However, chiropractic care offers a gentle and effective approach to potentially help resolve this issue.

Chiropractors focus on ensuring optimal pelvic alignment, which can create more space in the uterus for the baby to turn into the desired head-down position. When the pelvis is misaligned, it can restrict the baby's movement, potentially contributing to a breech presentation. We aim to create an environment that supports the baby's natural movement into the correct birthing position by addressing these misalignments through chiropractic adjustments.

At our clinic, we see two main types of pregnancy patients: those who receive consistent chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy journey and those who seek care later, often in the last trimester, due to discomfort or upon discovering a breech presentation.

While we can help all our clients, beginning chiropractic care earlier in pregnancy can increase the likelihood of successful adjustments to encourage optimal fetal positioning.

If you or someone you know is experiencing a breech presentation or seeking supportive prenatal care, consider chiropractic as part of your pregnancy wellness routine. Addressing pelvic alignment early on may help create the best conditions for a smoother pregnancy and delivery.
