We understand that that this is a confusing, uncertain and scary time. We are saddened to be having to make difficult decisions about the way your care is provided and would like to assure you that all the decisions are carefully considered and made to protect you, your baby, your family and our staff.

If you are offered a face to face to face appointment we strongly recommend that you attend. The maternity team will only recommend an appointment if the need for the appointment is greater than your risk of being exposed to coronavirus. We are checking women’s temperatures whenever they attend hospital and/or clinics and are asking you to wear masks. We are aware of the changes in Welsh Government advice regarding partners attending routine antenatal appointments and are working to make this as safe as possible. However this has not yet been started. Please do not attend your appointment with your partner without checking whether changes have been introduced.

We know this is a challenging time, particularly if you have concerns about your pregnancy and are worried about entering the hospital, but we are doing everything we can to minimise the spread of coronavirus to healthy women and babies. It is very important to come to hospital when you and your baby need care. If you have any concerns please call:
Phone: 01267 248682
Phone: 01970 635633

The day assessment unit is now located within the antenatal ward. The midwife on the triage line will advise you where to go. Please note that you will need to come to appointments on your own, but your partner is welcome to join via speaker phone on your mobile phone.
Currently we are able to continue with the homebirth service; if there are any changes to this service we will let you know as soon as we can. You can choose to have a homebirth at any point in your pregnancy, up to 42 weeks.
A general increase in anxiety is to be expected in the current pandemic situation. Often, simply acknowledging these difficulties can help to reduce some anxiety, therefore it is really important to talk to your midwife or GP if you are concerned about your levels of anxiety or mental health.
Car parking on all sites is open. Due to the reduced number of people coming to the hospital there are plenty of parking spaces.
