Moxibustion for Breech Babies

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

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.

Testimonial ...
"Despite being 38 weeks pregnant, my baby turned after Stella showed me how to continue the moxibustion at home.  The consultant said that it could have only been the moxibustion!!"
