Moxibustion for turning breech babies
Whilst it might appear strange, moxibustion is an age old method of turning babies presenting in a breech position. Many studies have been conducted which prove that this method has a very high success rate.
An acupuncturist will use moxa, which is a herb made from the mugwort plant. The herb is moulded into a cigar-like stick or a cone shape and is set alight and smoulders near specific acupuncture points. The mother is given homework to do this herself every morning and evening until the baby turns. It has instant effects and the mother will be able to feel the baby moving once the heat is applied.
It has proven very successful in my own clinic and is such and easy and completely pain-free method. No needles are used, just some gentle heat.
It's the easiest, quickest and safest method of turning a breech baby!
