I was referred to Dr. Dolopo after finding out my baby was breech at 33 weeks. I tried all the exercises of turning baby around at home for 2 weeks, but the baby was still breech at my 35 week checkup.

That's when I decided to give acupuncture a try before preparing myself for a c section. I went twice, Thursday and Saturday of the same week. When I went to my 36 week checkup, the baby had turned! Honestly, I didn't feel any major movements inside my belly, so I wasn't expecting any good news. The baby stayed head down since then, so I was able to have a vaginal delivery.

The nurse in the triage room asked me if I did anything to make the baby flip. When I told her [that I did] acupuncture, she said that's the only thing she heard that actually worked for many people.

If baby in breech position really bothers you, I would recommend to give acupuncture a try. It's not guaranteed to work, but this can be your last resort."

***Note from Dr. Dolopo, don't let acupuncture be your last resort.***
