This Blog site is all about pregnancy, pregnancy care, childbirth, and the joy of having a baby.

Conceiving, carrying and delivering a baby remains one of life’s greatest miracles.

While childbirth is a highly personal experience, it is one that is shared with others. It is a bodily event that is filled with joy and many physical mysteries. It is a delightful journey that ends with a welcome responsibility and the beginning of a brand new person. Having a baby is one of the most important events, and for some the most important event, in a woman’s life.

I, Dr Gary Sykes, am the author of this blog site. I am a fully accredited, Sydney based, specialist Obstetrician and Gynaecologist doctor, servicing Norwest Private Hospital, Bella Vista and the Sydney Adventist Hospital (the San), Wahroonga. His consulting rooms are well located in Norwest. Norwest is a subdivision of Baulkham Hills and is next to Castle Hill.

Our brand name is Obstetric Excellence. Obstetric Excellence is what I and my staff stand for. We endeavour to provide the best quality and most comprehensive range of obstetric services to safeguard our patients and their babies and in a friendly, personalised and caring atmosphere so they can optimise their enjoyment of this wonderful and rewarding times of life.

My goal is to provide the best quality of pregnancy care possible, in a warm, friendly and caring environment with attention to your individual needs and requests.

Our Facebook site has many photos and information. Check out the “Proud Parent” photo albums on our Facebook site. The photos have been given to us by some of our wonderful patients, with the knowledge that they will be included in our exciting collection. There are also albums with photos of me with my family, my office and virtual tours of both Norwest Private Hospital and the Sydney Adventist (San) Hospital.

Patients are invited to become our Facebook friends. If you are not a patient you are invited to become a ‘fan’ of our Obstetric Excellence Facebook site

We have the photos loaded as a Photostream on our Flickr site for those who don’t use Facebook. We believe it is the best collection of baby and proud parent photos on the internet!

We have added to our YouTube channel a few videos answering some of the commonly asked questions.

You are also invited to follow me on Twitter at Drgarysykes. We have also just started our Google+site
