Breech, or back to back presentation
Acupressure with Moxibustion techniques are used to safely and naturally turn the baby in the womb. Traditional Chinese Medicine recognises that when certain energetics do not come into play strongly enough in the third trimester the dynamics within the mother are not strong enough to naturally rotate the baby to the inverted position best suited for birth. There are time constrictions on when a baby can be turned from head up to head down. Treatment is best given at the first indication from your midwife that the baby has not yet turned. Short daily moxibustion treatments are given for up to 10 days. The baby will normally turn within that 10 day period. Your midwife will be able to confirm the orientation of the baby.
Back to back presentation (with head engaged) is approached in a similar way as breech presentation, is easier to achieve, and can be treated within a few weeks before labour.
