breech presentation protocol

It is best to begin working to turn a breech presentation as quickly as it is diagnosed. Attempting to turn a breech baby should only be done by a licensed acupuncturist and while under the care of your Obstetrician or Midwife. Acupuncture should be done 1-2 times per week to help gently and safely encourage the baby into the proper presentation.  Acupuncture can relax the pelvis, creating more energetic room and thereby encouraging a “spin.” Moxa is often done at home while in a tilt position which helps to align the baby and reinforce the treatments. Acupuncture also works to correct any overall imbalance that may be slowing progression.
