Breech Presentation

Acupuncture treatment for Breech Presentation at Rozelle Acupuncture
Acupuncture for Breech Positioning

If your baby is in a breech position, acupuncture can help encourage the baby’s rotation and optimize their position for a vaginal birth.

Breech presentation refers to the baby presents with its buttock or feet pointing downwards towards the cervix, rather than the baby’s head is pointed downwards. In these circumstances, we would recommend to commence these treatments from 34 weeks.

As we know babies do have mind of their own, and should your baby be breeched, we will work/consult with your midwife/ OB GYN, as at times babies can turn without any intervention.

Research :

2008 Systematic Review by Van den Berg I, et. Al  “The effectiveness of acupuncture type interventions versus expectant management to correct breech presentation”. The review included 6 Randomised Control Trials and 3 control studies that investigated acupuncture vs expectant management. The study found that the portion of breech presentation was 34% following acupuncture treatment compared to 66% in the control group. This suggests intervention with Acupuncture can be quite effective”.
