Turning breech babies is something that acupuncturists have been doing successfully for years. And it all starts with the outside of the little toe. The point Bladder 67 is located at the edge of the little toe nail and when needled and stimulated in a specific way by a trained practitioner, the expecting mother may or may not feel anything immediately but will usually experience the necessary movement of the baby. Of course this needs to confirmed by an OB/GYN by ultrasound so it is important to keep tabs with the expecting mother in case further treatments are needed. Recently, I had been blessed with 2 clients that had supportive OB/GYN’s and who wanted to try acupuncture. Both were successful and I’m now just waiting for the pictures!
But here is what expecting mother had to say:
“I was hesitant to post until my OB confirmed it this morning but I wanted to let you ladies know that 30 minutes after my acupuncture appointment with Julie at Marlborough Wellness Center my breech baby turned head down! I am still in a bit of disbelief that it actually worked but wanted to spread the great news and thank everyone who recommended Julie :)” – FaceBook post on a local mom’s group page on 11/17/15
So please, if you’re expecting or you know someone who is, please mention and consider acupuncture for turning breech babies because it works and it is safe and non-invasive!
