Objective:  The purpose of this paper is to discuss the outcome of a breech presentation involving a twin following the application of Webster Technique.

Clinical Features: A 28 year old pregnant patient of twins presented to the chiropractor with a diagnosis of a breech presentation by her obstetrician at 30 weeks gestation.

Intervention and Outcome: Over a nine-day period of time the patient was analyzed and adjusted according to her findings.  Both Gonstead and Webster analysis were utilized during each appointment.  After the patient underwent five adjustments over three weeks her obstetrician confirmed that the involved twin was in cephalic lie.

Conclusion: The patient was able to undergo normal vaginal birth, avoiding medical intervention such as External Cephalic Version and cesarean section.
