Dr. Dowling is certified in Webster Technique, which is a specific chiropractic technique used in pregnancy to improve the biomechanics of the pelvis. This optimization of pelvic function helps to decrease pain in pregnancy and improve positioning of the baby to help lessen pain during labor and speed up labor time - what mom doesn't want that?!
"I first started seeing Dr. Dowling because my baby had turned breech at 37 weeks. My OB had started talking about having a extraversion or a C section. As this was my third child, I wanted to try all other options before resorting to that. My OB referred me to Austin Family Chiropractic and they were able to get me in the very next day! Dr. Dowling performed the Webster technique, which has a high success rate for turning breech babies, and showed my husband and I Spinning Babies exercises to try. After only three Webster adjustments and 5 days of doing the exercises, my baby had turned head down again by the next OB appointment and I was able to deliver safely, no surgical intervention required! Dr. Dowling is my hero!"
