Dr. Stacey and Dr. Mike are both certified in The Webster Technique, a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment for pregnant mothers. When this technique is utilized consistently, it has been shown to be approximately 85% effective in helping a baby get into the best possible position for birth.
