Meet Dr Spence Pentland

Mission & Vision: ‘optimize the health of my clients, increase peoples chances of healthy conception, build happy families, and help cultivate a healthy fertile world.’

Dr. Pentland is founder of the Yinstill Reproductive Wellness and Yinstill’s IVF Acupuncture group, available 7 days a week for on-site embryo transfer and acupuncture treatments at the Pacific Centre for Reproductive Medicine (PCRM), Grace Fertility, and Genesis Fertility Centre in British Columbia, Canada. Further demonstrating his commitment to reproductive health, he is a devoted member of CFAS (Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society), and ASRM (American Society for Reproductive Medicine). And, as the former president of the Traditional Chinese Medicine Association of British Columbia and the provincial BC TCM quality assurance committee, Dr. Pentland is well respected by peers and patients alike. He remains actively involved in educating healthcare colleagues and the public on the powerful benefits of Chinese medicine & acupuncture, working steadily on the integration of ancient Daoist wisdom into modern western life as a way to build awareness about reproductive health. This compassionate expertise is reflected in patient testimonials.

Since 2004 I have seen the profound effect that infertility has on women and couples. It touches on something so fundamental to our being human that the emotional depths experienced are unlike any other. Looking through the lens of infertility I have gained intimate insights into the functioning of the body and human spirit. I feel blessed to have been a part of so many journeys toward the creation of family and feel the world needs to know more of these struggles so that we can all better support those who are hurting beyond comprehension.
