recurrent miscarriage

I wanted to prevent another miscarriage

I came to Erin as I had experience with miscarriage in the past, and wanted to do everything I could to keep this pregnancy. From herbal remedies to traditional acupuncture treatments, Erin helped calm my worries and educate me on numerous practices. The biggest difference I found from Western medicine was that Erin had time to hear my concerns, and created a treatment plan just for me. She listened and worked with me to overcome every symptom I was experiencing as my pregnancy progressed.

He'll Be Known In Our Family As Uncle Spence

Dr Spence, as I called him, made me feel really cared for. My husband and I went to see him because we wanted to find out why we were having early losses. He helped us develop a new approach that included thinking about our diet and relaxing so that the natural process of conceiving could take place.

We started treatment with him April 2011 and we are now very happy to expect our first child for May 2012 :)

Someone I will continue to see throughout my pregnancy and beyond

When my partner and I decided to start on our journey of conception, we were excited about the prospect of having a child as well as the intimate, joyful process that goes along with making that happen. We trusted that nature would take its course and that we would be pregnant before we knew it.

I matter, and for so long I had forgotten that...

My Husband and I were overjoyed when we found out we were pregnant. After months of excited anticipation, our Daughter was born and our world changed forever. I always knew that I was put on this earth to be a Mother, and I loved every minute of it. Yet somewhere in the midst of sleepless nights, endless dirty diapers and shear exhaustion, I felt myself starting to dissipate. Every day I would drag myself out of bed, look in the mirror and not really recognize the person staring back at me.

After suffering 3 miscarriages...

I came to see Dr. Pentland at the recommendation of a friend, after suffering 3 miscarriages. I was at the lowest point in my life and feeling very depressed and pessimistic about the future. At the very first meeting, Dr. Pentland made me feel at ease and gave me hope. He listened to me with complete attention as I cried and told him my history. Dr. Pentland was always calm, soothing and optimistic.

After my third pregnancy loss...

"After my third pregnancy loss I wondered if I would ever be able to have a baby. With the latest of the losses being in the second trimester I was heart broken and scared for what the future may hold. I had never thought that the path to becoming a mother would be so difficult and heart breaking. I started acupuncture in the months that followed and met Spence at that time. Being at acupuncture and working with Spence brought me a sense of calmness and offered an additional support as I continued on the journey to parenthood.

After 2 Miscarriages...

After two early miscarriages and almost two years of trying for a successful pregnancy with no identifiable reason for our troubles, we decided to look into IVF and happened to come across the website for Spence. I decided to try acupuncture and herbal teas as way of preparing for IVF. I enjoyed my weekly treatments, in part for the opportunity to simply relax and take some time for myself. After all the frustration and disappointment of the previous two years, it was nice to have hope again and a sense of well being from taking care of myself.

Highly Recommend Dr. Spence Pentland: Healthy Baby after a Stillborn

I came to Dr. Spence after having a stillborn baby in 2009. I never considered TCM or acupuncture before and didn’t even know that it would help me (and frankly was terrified of needles!). I only knew that I needed more that what my family doctor was offering, which was to get pregnant and “hope it doesn’t happen again.”
