Fetal Position

Often baby is hassled about being ‘right’ and others are in control – and mum gets to be worried unnecessarily. Who said being pregnant needed an overseer as though the body has no wisdom? Surely nature does not set a woman up to fail in such a biologically needed event – replication?

Leaving a normal pregnancy alone, and instead living a sensible life would reverse most problems. Living for the next scan, the next blood test, the next grim and doom prediction via the orthodox ‘care’ given medically takes its toll

I suggest inspirational and self help information is freely available on this site – and what I have in the apps and this site

Look to what I have out together after decades of professional maternal care


Find yourself someone who will be there for you throughout your life – not just a snap shot as all maternity trained and even medically trained people are – the global/entire life wellness focus is what you will need. Continuity of care is vital to have a touch stone to go to when needing more information. The internet can only fulfill so many needs.

‘Stress’ (being annoyed about anything – not getting ‘your’ own way)  is a large reason why things start looking interesting – you can’t change the world, but you an change you response to it.

Before you do anything with moxa . . . be kind to all concerned.
Maybe baby is supposed to be just where s/he is.

What most think that they know – a magic point to play with  . . .

Please do not start here

Here is a demonstration on how to moxa the toe point – mum is not to – as she is not in an extended position – and here is the thing – need to get baby comfy where it is more spacious . . .so optimally fetal positioning is about easy exit.

This point is usually seen as the magic cure – until you try it.

There is a reason baby is in whatever position is deemed ‘not right’.

Please do not do this moxa trick more than twice. In fact I rarely need to in clinic – as if baby is not moving there is a reason – so possibly .. . work slightly backwards – Why is baby in a different position than is considered as being optimal?

Find out – start with improving life for all – improve mum’s nutrition and posture and then see what may be needed – often this ‘breech emergency’ is just a way to get mum to focus on her baby, not her external life. There is a need to bond and to get serious – rather than having a pregnancy on top of her busy schedule/life. Who said being breech is a problem anyway? Possibly baby is safest there and can easily come if all calm down and let her /him sort it out themselves. (Please also go to www.spinningbabies.com)

Please look to the eBook series found here as it holds a photographic essays and other women’s stories on what made the difference for them.

Start with sacral fan moxa  . .

to calm the area locally and also mum – and have magnesium oil on hand to do the same – and use multiple times daily as more magnesium (wand way less calcium than is usually taken) is the key here – as in taking in board a lot more daily Vit D. See the eBook below for more

After the moxa, next comes the massage – and this is quite painful so start slow and shallow and build it up . .

Often all that is needed is more magnesium, or rest, more reassurance and nature will takeover.
