MANUEL was called to a home in the middle of the night for a baby delivery. The baby was okay, but the placenta had stayed attached to the uterus which had prolapsed completely out of the woman's body. He warmed DU 20 with moxa. After 20 minutes the placenta fell away from the uterus and the uterus began to move. In 15 more minutes the uterus had moved back inside the woman's body.
