Abstract


 

Objective: The purpose of this case study is to discuss the results obtained using the Webster Technique on a pregnant patient with a fetus in transverse presentation.

 

Clinical Features: A 28-year-old female presented at 36 weeks pregnant with her third child. A transverse position of the fetus was confirmed with ultrasound by the ObGyn.

 

Interventions and Outcomes: Through the use of Webster Technique protocol, the patient was found to have a sacral subluxation and taut fibers along the round ligament. After one Webster Technique adjustment, the fetus was confirmed to have moved from transverse position to vertex position via ultrasound.

 

Conclusion: This case describes a patient who was able to avoid a cesarean section and proceed with an uncomplicated vaginal delivery. Ultrasounds were obtained of the transverse position of the fetus before the administration of the Webster Technique and after with the fetus in the vertex position.
