How much does acupuncture turn a breech baby?

The belly of pregnant women with breech delivery is often hard and distorted, but this belly is soft and round after receiving breech acupuncture. Doctors are surprised at this change.

The roundness and softness of a pregnant woman’s stomach makes it easier for the breech to turn, so “acupuncture and cranio therapy” helps pregnant women regain their original “round and soft” stomachs.

During pregnancy, “blood” is drained more and more, so pregnant women become very tired from living the same life as usual, causing various physical problems, and their stomachs become distorted and stiff.

Even if the belly becomes distorted or stiff, it is okay because a pregnant woman’s belly often changes its expression. Even if your belly returns to a round and soft state, please take it easy.

Pregnant women with breech babies sometimes ask me, “How likely is it that the breech baby will turn if I receive acupuncture?” I have recently started to write the results in a chart.

Pregnant women who come to our clinic are not under the same conditions, such as different number of weeks, different frequency of treatment, different risks, etc., and we cannot compare them all together, so please do not think in terms of percentages.

It is said that the smaller the fetus is, the more likely it is to turn, and the more likely it is to turn if the fetus is treated with acupuncture while it is estimated to weigh less than 2000 grams.
