Malposition of the Fetus

Various methods of acupuncture, such as pressure at ear points and moxibustion at zhìyin (BL67) or zúlínqí (GB41), have been used to correct abnormal fetal position during the last three months of pregnancy. The success rates in groups treated with these methods were much higher than the occurrence of spontaneous version or in groups treated with knee-chest position or moxibustion at non-classical points (164-167).
