One case study from February 2009 in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health, documented the case of a woman in the midst of a difficult birth receiving help with chiropractic. A case study showed the successful collaboration of chiropractors and midwives, as the authors describe the care of a woman in labor with problems.

.

The case study involved a 26 year old first time mother experiencing problems during labor. She had chosen a home birth delivery with 3 midwives and her chiropractor in attendance. At 23 hours of labor, the woman had lack of cervical dilation, descent but diminished uterine contractions along with decreased fetal heart tones. Due to the variety of problems the midwives discussed the possibility of transferring the patient to the hospital. At that point the decision was made to initiate chiropractic care with the “Webster Technique”.

Dr. Jeanne Ohm, Director of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and a co-author of the study stated, “Research is revealing that chiropractic care is extremely beneficial before, during and after the birth process, helping the mother enjoy a healthier pregnancy, a more normal delivery and giving the child a better start in life. Study after study is showing that a chiropractor is an indispensable part of the birthing team.”
