BREECH BABY ACUPUNCTURE

Between week 32 and 36, it is expected that most babies settle into a head-down position, which is the best position for birth. Breech presentation means that the baby’s bottom is closest to the cervix and delivered before the head. In malposition,  the baby’s head is down, however not in the best position. The best position for the baby to be in is termed a “well-flexed anterior position”,  meaning that the baby has its head down, with its back against your abdomen and facing your back.

At Holistic we have high success rates in turning breech babies. Breech baby acupuncture and moxa can be used to encourage babies to turn from a breech position or malposition for the best delivery position. The heat from burning moxa sticks is used to stimulate the baby and encourage it to turn.

“Acupuncture during pregnancy can reduce medical intervention and increase the chances of a natural birth”

MOXIBUSTION AND BREECH BABY

 

Acupuncture and moxa treatments work best if starting as soon as the baby is breech. Moxa is a “heat therapy” applied to specific points in the body to encourage the baby to turn.

It may take several hours for the baby to turn, this type of treatment works best if moxa is continuously applied daily at home. Moxa is usually applied over several nights, or until the baby has turned itself.
