Dr. Andrino is a practitioner of both Webster and it's precursor Logan Basic. He cares for: women trying to
conceive; already pregnant mothers from week 20 on who desire an easier labor and delivery; for those who
require assistance in gently and safely encouraging their baby to correct from a breeched position.
During fetal development the uterus must expand. This occurs only if the pelvis is balanced. The ligaments
connected to the uterus maintain a symmetrically supportive structure for the uterus. If your pelvis is out
of alignment, these ligaments become torqued and twisted causing a condition known as constraint to
your uterus. This constraint limits the space of the developing baby. Any compromised position for the
baby throughout pregnancy will affect his or her optimal development. Conditions such as torticollis
occur because a baby s space was cramped in utero. If the uterus is constrained as birth approaches, the
baby is prevented from getting into the best possible position for birth.
Even if the baby is in the desirable head down position, often times constraint to the uterus affects the
baby's head from moving into the ideal presentation for delivery. The head may be slightly tilted off to one
side or even more traumatically, present in the posterior position. Any baby position even slightly off
during birth will slow down labor, and add pain to both the mother and baby. Many women have been told
that their babies were too big, or labor just slowed down when it was really the baby’s presentation
interfering with the normal process and progression. Avoidable interventions are implemented turning a
natural process into an operative one.
