Breech Presentation

Breech babies can be turned to a cephalic position (head down) using moxabustion.

This treatment is most effective from 35 – 36 weeks, although babies can turn up to 40 weeks.

You will be given a treatment of moxabustion on acu point Bl 67, and instructions on how to do this at home. This is a twice-daily treatment for 10 days for optimal success.

Studies show babies stay cephalic more with acupuncture than ECV. There is less need for oxytocin during delivery, and the babies need less neonatal care.

This can be part of your Pre Birth Acupuncture treatment.
