Message from the Practice Manager!
2019 is off to a great start!
Lots of you have been asking about Alena and her pregnancy. As you might know Alena is my daughter and works with us at reception (when she isn't having babies).
Well Alena gave birth to her 3rd baby, Torvi. A beautiful little girl who looks just like her mum! (Keep scrolling to see a photo of baby Torvi!)
There is change in the air as we continue to grow and serve our local community. Stay tuned over the next few months to keep up.
To our Mums: With Christmas over and the children back at school it is time to take time for yourselves. Looking after ourselves is much more than looking at our physical health. How are you feeling mentally? Feelings of anxiety and depression are so common today but we still don't like to talk about them.
Social media shows us perfect women living perfect lives with perfect families. We forget that they only show us what they want us to see. I think this places so much pressure on women today to show an "in control" face to the world. If you are feeling anxious, stressed or overwhelmed by life please come to talk to us.
I know it sounds cliche but it is amazing how talking to someone can help. Both of our doctors are great listeners and know how to give you the support you need. Physical health of course is important too. We are often so busy running around looking after the family we forget the importance of self care.
When was your last women's health check? We have the lovely Dr Knight, our female GP, available to talk to you about a whole range of topics such as- contraception, pregnancy and health checks. Dr Knight is available for implanon insertion and removal, Mirena insertion and removal, as well as helping to find the right contraceptive pill for you.
So lets start 2019 by looking after ourselves so we are in the best mental and physical health we can be, to look after our families. May it be a great year for all.
