Turning Your Breech Baby

Several reviews have found that moxibustion (or moxa – a warming herb) has a positive effect on correcting breech presentation. The moxa protocol, which Jo teaches for self-treatment at home, is often recommended by midwives. Anecdotal feedback from patients suggest success rates are high.

Acupuncture has been shown to be a safe and effective treatment for the turning of breech babies. Effectiveness appears to increase the sooner the issue can be addressed (from around 34 weeks) and if it is a subsequent pregnancy (rather than first).

There’s plenty you can do at home too, optimum positioning is key. There are lots of resources online to help you get into the best position to help a breech baby move including this free leaflet.

Jo has had a great deal of success helping breech babies turn. If you’d like to check availability and book an appointment you can do so online here.

If you’d like to get in touch with Jo, you can email her direct or via the contact form. Free 15 minute consultations are available by phone.

Thank you, baby is now correctly positioned after spinning for weeks. A big relief at 35 weeks pregnant.
