Research has shown that the herb Mugwort (Ai Ye) acts as an “emmenagogue”, increasing circulation to the pelvic area and uterus, stimulating menstruation, used for menstrual cramps and treating breech presentation births.
A landmark study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1998 found that up to 75% of women with breech presentations before childbirth had fetuses rotated to the normal position after receiving moxibustion at a special acupuncture point on the baby toes (BL 67) by a practitioner of Moxibustion or Acupuncture
When to start? If the baby has not turned by 32 weeks one can start the moxibustion treatment. Repeat this treatment once a day for 10 days, or until you feel the baby turn inside of you. Obviously it is preferable not to wait too long as the it becomes harder for the baby to turn the bigger it gets.
Moxibustion has been proven to be an effective and non-invasive way to treat breech babies.
