Breech and Transverse Babies

Acupuncture is a safe and effective method for turning breech babies. Based on research studies, acupuncture has been shown to assist in the turning  of  babies that present as breech or transverse. A herb called Moxa is used in this type of treatment whilst very specific acupuncture points are stimulated, including a point on the little toe.


Bladder 67 (Zhiyin-UB67) is the main point needled and warmed with moxa that may help turn breech presentation.

Other points on the body are selected and combined with Bladder 67 to enhance results.
