On Saturday May 9th, the public is invited to attend the official release of Being Fertile: 10 Steps to Help You Overcome the Struggles of Infertility, Get Pregnant, and Create a Happy Healthy Family. This is the new book by Dr. Spence Pentland, esteemed practitioner of traditional Chinese reproductive medicine in the Vancouver area.

A Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine, Dr. Pentland is the #1 rated acupuncturist in all of Canada on the website RateMD.com. Dr. Pentland will be joined by several speakers who will share their insights and inspiring stories about the fertility process.

The event is headlined by Mary-Jo Dionne‘s one-woman show, Glowing: A Reproduction Production. The 45 minute performance is described as “The show for any person who has ever given birth. Or been born.” The CBC calls it “A real crowd pleaser.” The Winnipeg Free Press hails the show as “Funny, moving and intimate.”

Lynn Colliar from Global News will serve as the evening’s host. Each guest in attendance will receive a complimentary copy of the book upon entry (the Being Fertile paperback currently retails for $23.26 on Amazon.ca).

Being Fertile Book Release Details:

  • The event will be held at The Cultch arts theatre located at 1895 Venables Street in Vancouver, BC. Visit their website for venue information.

  • Be sure to mark Saturday May 9th, 2015 on your calendar. Doors open at 6pm. Stories begin at 7pm.

PCRM is proud to be a gold sponsor for this special event. Dr. Pentland has written an inspirational guide with practical information and real-life stories about getting pregnant with IVF (In Vitro Fertilization), traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture. Being Fertile contains a foreward by PCRM’s very own Dr. Jeffery Roberts.

It is bound to be a night of conversation, support, encouragement and community.

Infertility can be a taxing struggle—both physically and emotionally—for those on the journey to parenthood. PCRM is sympathetic to the fragile perspective of all would-be parents facing fertility challenges.

Whatever the process, pregnancy is a life-changing experience. Anyone who has ever opted to have a child knows that parenthood, and the road to getting there, is never easy. Childbirth is the beginning of a life-long adventure. Everyone who desires it deserves to experience it.

Join Dr. Pentland in the celebration of his new book amongst a gathering of people who truly appreciate what it means to create a family.
