Moxibustion is a technique that has been used by the Chinese for thousands of years to encourage breech babies to turn head down. It involves applying a small heated ‘moxa stick’ over the little toe for a short time frame and is something you can also do at home once instructed safely.
Moxibustion is completely safe to use under the guidance of our team and won’t do any harm. Generally the best time to achieve optimum results is between 34-37 weeks, however we are happy to try after 37 weeks if you have a late mover!
Moxibustion has such a good success rate that many midwives are now recommending it as a first line treatment for turning breech babies. You can book an appointment for turning a breech baby using the link above.
