Moxibustion for breech babies

Moxibustion is…

  • Safe for you and your baby
  • Recommended by midwives
  • Encourages breech babies to turn

Moxibustion is a safe and gentle way of helping to encourage breech babies to move into the right position. Best results are often gained before weeks 36-37, as there is still room for your baby to move. Moxibustion can also help later in the pregnancy as well.

What is Moxibustion?

Moxibustion uses a stick of Moxa, which is a warming herb, that is lit and held over an acupuncture point on the little toe. This warms the point and encourages your baby to move into the right position.

During the consultation I will show you how to use the moxa stick so that you can continue with this at home.
