In brief: Moxibustion

I agree with the information that was provided by dr. Herold and dr. Ferguson.
The following site provides excellent information on how moxibustion can be used for a baby with a breech presentation. http://www.pregnancy.com.au/birth-choices/breech-birth/moxibustion-for-breech-presentation.shtml ** see below**.

“The acupuncture point UB 67 is the primary point selected for use because it is the most dynamic point to activate the uterus. Its forte is in turning malpositioned babies. It is located on the outer, lower edge of both little toenails. According to TCM theory, moxa has a tonifying and warming effect which promotes movement and activity. The nature of heat is also rising. This warming and raising effect is utilised to encourage the baby to become more active and lift its bottom up in order to gain adequate momentum to summersault into the head down position.”

In brief: Wait it out

Babies do change positions during pregnancy so it could switch by next week.
If it doesn't switch naturally, sometimes the OB can try a turning maneuver called a version to turn it., but this has some risks. If you go to full term as a breach expect a surgical delivery.

In brief: External version

An external cephalic version is usually done around 36-40 weeks.
Your doctor will give you a medicine to relax your uterus and attempt to turn your baby from the outside. You can try acupuncture and moxibustion performed by an acupuncturist who specializes in women's health starting around 30-32 weeks. There are also pelvic tilt "breech exercises" that can be done at home.
