Breech presentation is actually becoming more common these days. Part of the reason is because women are actually having children when they are older. A lot of times, with a breech presentation, the treatment and therapy for it are not always very sound or effective. Moxibustion, in the area of Chinese medicine, provides another alternative that can get as high as 75 percent success rate. It's a procedure of using moxa in a cigar stick, where you are burning moxa and create heat and therapeutic scent. There's a point where that actually helps to stimulate the meridian, where you stimulate that point. When that point feels that heat and the scent, it stimulates the pelvis to start to change shape where it actually make the baby turn and change its position. It's been used for, probably, the last 25 years now. It's been very successful and useful. If there is some anatomical issue where, let's say, the uterus is too narrow or that the cord is around the fetus. You can do moxa, but the baby won't turn. It's a safe, alternative treatment that is very effective.
