We are so pleased to tell you that our brilliant receptionist Marcia gave birth to her beautiful baby girl today. Here is a picture of her from when she popped into clinic to see us on the way home from hospital (We were so honoured to be her first ever visit to see people!) Both Marcia and baby Ava are doing brilliantly and we are so happy to have a new addition to the Dynamic Health family. I know lots of you have been asking after them both and Marcia assures us she'll be popping in often in her maternity leave so we can all get our cuddles in!
Merry Christmas from all of us at Dynamic Health!
