Abstract

Midwives at West Middlesex NHS Trust (WMUH) have been trained in the use of moxibustion to turn a breech presentation. This paper informs the reader of this service, how it was implemented, the audit and importance of maintaining accurate data as well as the resulting changes to the service. Moxibustion appears to be a safe, easy and cost effective way to promote cephalic presentation and is offered prior to external cephalic version (ECV).
