We can only share from our experience working with both turning a breech and Prebirth Acupuncture.
Women usually come in to turn a breech baby slightly earlier between 32 to 36 weeks of pregnancy. Sometimes they come in later, like close to week 38, but these are less common. Women come in for prebirth acupuncture from week 36 onwards, and stay all the way up until they deliver.
When implementing acupuncture to turn a breech, we use acupuncture points that help ‘nudge’ a baby into turning into a head-down position. When implementing Prebirth Acupuncture, we don’t even try to move the baby too much from week 36 onward, but from week 38 on, we do start gently using some acupuncture points that help with increasing blood flow in the pelvis. Past the EDD, we employ even stronger acupuncture points to help bring on labor. The method of acupuncture is slightly different, and the choice of acupuncture points are also different than those used to turn a breech.
