Brighton & Sussex


for fertility, pregnancy and childbirth

Welcome to the Brighton & Sussex Acupuncture Childbirth Team (ACT Brighton & Sussex). We are a team of acupuncturists with expertise in obstetric and fertility care dedicated to enhancing the birth experience using the wisdom and knowledge of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

We are available to attend births and provide acupuncture treatments throughout pregnancy as well as preparing women for labour and teaching acupressure techniques to birthing partners.

An important part of our work is also to support pre-conception and we give treatment to naturally enhance fertility for men and women, as well as during IVF and other assisted reproductive techniques.

ACT Brighton & Sussex covers Brighton & Hove, Lewes, Ditchling, Hassocks, Haywards Heath and surrounding areas. Just go to our Team page to find your nearest ACT practitioner.

Members of the Acupuncture Childbirth Team are available to give talks on the use of acupuncture for fertility, pregnancy and birth. As part of an on-going collaboration, Brighton and Sussex University Hospital recently invited us to speak and participate in a series of CPD presentations for midwives, on treatments for breech presentation and acupuncture/acupressure for pain relief during labour. If you would like us to come to your pregnancy yoga class, post-natal support meeting or homebirth group, please call us on the above number or email us at

We regularly run acupressure workshops for couples and birth partners to use for support and pain relief during labour. These can be arranged with your ACT practitioner directly or via the above number and email contact.
