Between 29-32 weeks 15% of babies will be in breech position (bum down instead of head down). While the majority of these will spontaneously turn before birth, the longer a baby stays in this position, the less space it will have to make the turn.
Acupuncture and moxibustion are effective and scientifically proven in safely encouraging babies to turn to the desirable head down position to prepare for optimal natural birth conditions.
Sophie’s Script for Turning a Breech Baby
Sophie can encourage your baby to turn to the physiologically desirable head down position to maintain your birthing options and increase odds of an uncomplicated birth.
The treatment typically occurs between 34- 37 weeks of pregnancy and involves a session of acupuncture followed up with daily applications of moxibustion at home.
Sophie provides thorough instructions for home moxa application. A follow up visit to check for baby position is scheduled and timing varies depending on number of weeks pregnant at outset of treatment.
This method has been used to turn breech babies in China for centuries, and has up to a 92% correction rate.
