Owner of ‘The Acupuncture Clinic Herstmonceux, Susan Miles has been practicing Five Element Acupuncture since 2002.
She initially trained at the School of Five Element Acupuncture (SOFEA) and then worked at the Kite Clinic in central London for six years. She has been running the practice in Herstmonceux, Sussex since 2003.
Sue is well known for her work in fertility and has been helping couples since 2003.
Whether you aim to conceive naturally or whether IVF is necessary, acupuncture can significantly boost your fertility.
This style of acupuncture is different to others in that there are no formulas or set protocols, instead each treatment is tailored to your particular needs. This means that hormone levels are balanced, blood circulation is improved and healthy maturation of sperm and eggs is stimulated.
By combining acupuncture with IVF, success rates seem to dramatically improve, not only in creating the most ideal conditions for conception, but also giving the highest possible chance of a problem-free pregnancy.
Sue’s goal is always to help people conceive without IVF but where it is necessary the combining of these two systems provide a very positive result.
One of the best things you can do for yourself and your baby while you’re pregnant is to get acupuncture.
Acupuncture can relieve stress and anxiety, nausea, morning sickness, heartburn, pain and discomfort caused by constipation, back pain, leg cramping, insomnia, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, pre- and post-partum depression. And may also help resolve a breech presentation.
Acupuncture can help prime your body and your baby for labour.
This treatment is particularly helpful for encouraging the hormonal cascades that instigate labour as well as encouraging the baby downward in the birth canal.
The points we use help signal to the body that it is time to deliver the baby. These are the points that are otherwise never used during pregnancy, because they are so effective in stimulating the body to open and release.
Many mothers find this treatment reassuring; it is very gentle and safe, and most mothers find it helps to ease the pressure they may feel about having a hospital induction.
Acupuncture treatment can really help to energise the mother and may help to bring the added strength needed to have an effective labour and delivery
If you think you may want to try Acupuncture as your due date approaches please call the clinic sooner rather than later. It is much easier to cancel appointments than it is to make them at the last minute.

I am an experienced practicing midwife, qualified for 12 years. I am a member of the Royal College of Midwives and registered with the Nursing & Midwifery Council.
I have worked as a clinical midwife in both hospital and community settings. I have held senior positions as a labour ward co-ordinator and practice development midwife. I have extensive experience of teaching midwives (including student midwives), medical students, junior doctors and leading parent education. I have also worked and taught in Hospitals throughout Sussex as well as at the University of Brighton. This depth of experience and commitment has enabled me to complete a Masters degree in Midwifery.
My passion is, and always has been normal birth, in particular homebirth and waterbirth. I am an advocate of techniques that enhance women’s innate ability to birth their babies safely and calmly. Having witnessed the effectiveness of HypnoBirthing® while working as a midwife, I decided to use it myself for the birth of my son, Noah, at home. It definitely worked...
As a result of this experience, I decided to undertake the training to become a Certified HypnoBirthing® Practitioner in order to teach parents-to-be how to use the techniques for their own births. I believe that HypnoBirthing® is one of the most effective techniques available to parents wishing to enhance the quality of their birth experience.

Angela Wallis completed a three year Bachelor of Science degree in Acupuncture from the International College of Oriental Medicine in East Grinstead. Angela has been running her busy acupuncture practice for the past 10 years in Polegate, Eastbourne and Battle locations. Having had IVF to conceive her first pregnancy and a natural conception the second time round, Angela is extremely knowledgeable in fertility and pregnancy acupuncture.
Acupuncture can effectively support your pregnancy from conception to birth.
Even an uncomplicated pregnancy can involve a few health niggles - acupuncture can safely and effectively support you. Common conditions treated include: nausea, back pain, breech and natural induction. Angela has treated 100s of pregnant patients, helping them have happy and discomfort free pregnancies.
Common Pregnancy Niggles
Research has found evidence that Acupuncture can provide a safe, drug free alternative for the relief of pregnancy related symptoms. It can effectively help a wide range of health issues during pregnancy including back or pelvic pain, nausea, heartburn, sinusitis, fatigue and emotional problems.
Labour preparation & natural induction
Acupuncture can play an important role in preparing you for birth. Research suggests that regular treatment in your final weeks can reduce the duration of your labour (DB). If you're overdue, acupuncture & acupressure can be used to support induction and pain relief in clinic and at home.
Turning your breech baby
Several reviews have found that moxibustion (or moxa - a warming herb) has a positive effect on correcting breech presentation. The moxa protocol, which Angela teaches for self-treatment at home, is often recommended by midwives. Anecdotal feedback from patients suggests success rates are high.
