So my midwife gave me an alternate method to try and turn baby (he's breech) and its called moxibustion....have any of you tried it, did it work, and what is it! Lol!

I tried it with DD. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me, but it doesn't hurt to try. There are these moxibustion sticks, they are like incense sticks, but thicker, like a cigar. You light one and have someone hold it just next to your little toe one foot at a time. For 5-10 minutes each time I think. Close enough so that you can feel the warmth, but not so close that it burns. It's a form of accupuncture. DD would go nuts moving around when we did it, but never flipped. Good luck!

Ok....well I guess I down to try it...did your LO ever flip? Or did you have a cs?

She didn't flip, but I didn't find out she was breech until 37 weeks, so it was sort of late. I ended up with a Csection :( In hind sight, I really, really wish I had gone to a chiropractor to try the webster technique. I've gone to the chiro for other things since and she's worked wonders. Let me know if you can't find the moxibustion sticks, I think I have some left I can send you. I got them from an accupuncturist.
