What is Moxa / Moxibustion to turn Breech Babies?

Moxa is the herb mugwort which is pre-rolled into a cylinder like shape and referred to as a moxa roll. Moxibustion is a technique that entails the lighting the end of the mugwort moxa roll as you would a candle. You do not inhale or smoke the herb. When the moxa roll begins to throw off heat, the roll is positioned over an acupuncture point to pleasantly warm the point that, according to Chinese medicine, uniquely has the effect of stimulating your baby’s activity enough that the baby gently changes position on their own.
Pregnancy Acupuncture and Moxa are safely and gently used turn breech babies lying in positions undesirable for a natural vaginal delivery. Here at Bring It On we expertly use the branches of Chinese Medicine called Moxibustion and Pregnancy Acupuncture to turn breech babies.

What are breech babies?

Approximately 3 in 100 babies approach their delivery date in a breech position. The normal position, in which the baby is head-down, is called Occiput Anterior or a cephalic presentation. Breech baby positions are described using the following terms:
• Breech baby: This the most common position, the baby’s bottom is down.
• Complete breech baby: In a complete breech position, the baby is bottom-first with knees bent and crossed indian style.
• Frank breech baby: The baby is bottom first with the legs extended up, with feet near the head;
• Footling breech baby: This is when one leg is lowered over the cervix and one foot is poised to come out first.
• Occiput posterior: This position is similar to the normal, except that the baby faces the mother’s front, instead of her back. During labour these babies may rotate to the easier to deliver occiput anterior position.
• Transverse/ shoulder or oblique position: A baby in this transverse position is lying sideways, usually with their shoulders or back over the cervix.
• Sometimes referred to as a Rare Abnormal Delivery Positions: This includes face-first, brow-first, and compound, in which a hand or foot emerges from the birth canal with the head or buttocks.
