Acupuncture

The New Zealand Evidence Based Practice Guidelines for Care of Women with Breech Presentation (4) recommends that:

moxibustion may be offered to women from 33 weeks gestation. Research has also demonstrated that moxibustion can have a significant effect in helping to turn breech babies (5). Ideally treatment would begin at 34-35 weeks, but it can still be beneficial when used later in the pregnancy. Other Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) techniques can also help babies that are not in the optimal position prior to birth, such as those in posterior position.
