I have heard acupuncture is very good for moving the baby to the correct position?

Hi Alex
I am currently 35 weeks pregnant and was told by my obstertrician the other day my baby is in breach position, she said if my baby hasn`t moved in 2 weeks then i would have to book in for a caesarean. I have heard acupuncture is very good for moving the baby in the correct position. Is this safe?
Cheers,
Jackie

Answer: Hi Jackie, You can try acupuncture but talk to the practitioner beforehand as to their success rate. You may also wan to enquire at the hospital of the possibility of having external cephalic version. This is when the baby is turned using pressure under the watch of ultrasound. Best wishes, Alex
