Acupuncture + Moxibustion for Breech Presentation: a low-risk treatment with a high success rate. What could be better?
According to Cochrane.org, moxibustion is effective at turning a breech baby. Moxibustion has been used for several millennia to gently encourage a breech position baby to turn head-down, which is the optimal position for labor and delivery. It involves burning of the herb mugwort near an acupuncture point located at the nail edge of the pinky toe. This is done in tandem with acupuncture, and most patients leave the appointment feeling a sense of calm and relaxation.
