Chiropractic for Dystocia in Labor

A recent chiropractic study was published that gives hope to mothers wishing to give birth at home. At 23 hours into labor, chiropractic care was initiated on a 26-year-old woman who had a lack of cervical dilation, diminished contractions and decreased fetal heart sounds. With appropriate care, including shifting positions under midwife recommendations and gentle, specific chiropractic care using the Webster technique, her baby girl was born healthy after 34 hours of labor. Despite the misconception that a slow birth needs to be sped up, conservative care can be used to naturally replace pharmacological intervention.
