Moxibustion Pack for Breech Baby
Moxibustion is an externally applied Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatment using a Chinese herb commonly known as Mugwort. The Mugwort is compressed and rolled into a cigar-shaped herbal stick.
Moxa sticks are lit and held over an acupuncture point to radiate heat which in turn stimulates the baby’s movements and encourages it to turn.
This acupuncture point is called Bladder 67, also known as BL 67 or UB 67. It is the primary point selected for use because it is the most dynamic point to activate the uterus. It’s forte is in turning malpositioned babies!
Moxibustion is a surprisingly effective, safe, non-invasive, DIY treatment that women should consider if they wish to attempt to turn their baby naturally and avoid restricting their birthing options.
This technique can also be used to reposition a baby in a tranverse position. This is where the baby has it’s shoulder or back pointing down, or is lying sideways across the abdomen.
1 pack of 10 quality moxibustion sticks, plus instructions.
This is a 10 day at-home treatment program. Moxibustion should be applied for 15 minutes daily, for 10 consecutive days (or stopping if baby turns before then). Two moxa sticks will be needed per session (one at each acupuncture point of each little toe) but moxa sticks may be used more than once.
This technique can be done on your own or with the help of someone.
Optimal time of use is 33 - 36 weeks. Studies show 75% of babies will turn if this treatment is used between this time.
