OBJECTIVE: Version to correct breech presentation at term remains important, because feet-first vaginal delivery of a baby is associated with a higher risk of fetal morbidity and mortality. METHOD: The technique consists of puncture at point B67. This technique is thought to work by increasing the probability of the fetus turning by increasing active fetal movements. RESULTS: Five randomised studies evaluating the value of acupuncture in cases of siege presentation indicate that this method tended to be effective. However, no placebo-controlled study has been carried out. CONCLUSION: Acupuncture should be attempted in cases of breech presentation.
