CARJACKED!!!

Rob Buist Blog No Comments

Last Wednesday afternoon (i.e. in broad daylight) I was driving from my office to see a woman in labour when I was bumped from behind in Barker St. I jumped out of my car only to find two guys waving baseball bats at me and demanding my car keys (I have – had – a little BMW). Of course I complied and handed them over immediately and away they went in my beautiful car. My wallet and phone were also in the car

The extremely helpful professional detectives from Maroubra Police Station think my car will be used in a robbery then burned and dumped so I am not optimistic about its return.

Anyway I managed to give the Police their statement then deliver Lyla – a 4.65 kg baby – by an emergency caesarean that evening. And I’d like to thank Lyla’s father Roy for the loan of $50 for some taxi fares.

Life is not  dull…

Antenatal and Birthing Classes at Rob Buist Obstetrics

Rob Buist Blog No Comments

I’m pleased to announce that my midwifery colleague Allison Cummins and I will shortly be providing Antenatal and Birthing Classes at Rob Buist Obstetrics. We will be providing a complete set of birthing classes that will help you prepare for the birth of your baby or babies. Please check out the details of these courses in the Services section of my website. The first courses will begin in May of this year.

The classes are open to anyone (although I suppose being pregnant would help) – and you do not need to be a patient of mine to attend them.

Contact Rebekah at my office (rebekah@robbuist.com) to make an enquiry or book into a class.

And watch this space – we will shortly be announcing information sessions regarding a wide range of seminars on a number of topics relating to pregnancy and childbirth

I took a few photos of our new offices on our first day over here. They look quite bare and you can see that Rebekah had a stressful day but everyone else – patients, joiners and the IT guys – all had a good time.

Keith Richards at Rob Buist Obstetrics!

Rob Buist Blog No Comments

Yesterday I visited the fantastic exhibition of Rock and Roll photographs by Tony Mott at the Blender Gallery ( www.tonymott.com.au www.blender.com.au ). I wound up buying a good sized framed photo of Keith Richards in action (no shirt, guitar, cigarette and all). Now my wife has banned “Any more Rolling Stones s**t” from the house and I don’t have (or want) a pool room so the photo will need to go up in my waiting room. Not exactly sending out a healthy lifestyle message, am I?

Shopping around for an obstetrician

Rob Buist Blog No Comments

It makes a lot of sense to check out more than one obstetrician before embarking on one of the most important therapeutic relationships of your life. I believe most women choose an obstetrician on the advice of a friend or family member or – less commonly in my experience – their GP or other health professional. Even then many women – wisely in my view – develop a short list and then go to see more than one obstetrician in order to check them out before making a final decision. Read more
