Maternity - what services we provide

Across the three counties, we have differing services available within the hospitals which are listed below.  We do offer home births across all three counties of Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire.

 

Carmarthenshire

Address: Dinefwr Ward, Glangwili General Hospital, Glangwili Road, Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire  SA31 2AF
Antenatal Ward Tel Nr: (01267) 221735

Midwife Led Unit Tel Nr: (01267) 248640

At Glangwili Hospital, we also have a midwife led unit for women who have straightforward pregnancies.  We also have a doctor led labour ward for women who need extra care from our doctors and midwives. If your baby is born after 32 weeks and needs extra care, we can look after them in a Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU).

 

Ceredigion

Address:  Gwenllian Ward, Bronglais General Hospital, Caradog Road, ABERYSTWYTH, Ceredigion  SY23 1ER
Tel Nr:  (01970) 635633

At Bronglais Hospital, we have a midwife led unit for women who have straightforward pregnancies.  We also have a doctor led labour ward for women who need extra care from our doctors and midwives. 

There may be times where we cannot look after you or your baby in Aberystwyth and you will need to have your baby in Carmarthen.  Some of the reasons for this could be:

  • if we know that your baby will need special or neonatal care before it is born
  • if your pregnancy is a bit more complicated such as you are expecting twins or more
  • if you have insulin dependent diabetes, or gestational diabetes controlled with insulin
  • or you go into labour before 37 weeks.

In the event of your baby being born and needing extra care we have a neonatal room where we can take your baby until they can be taken to a more specialised unit.

 

Pembrokeshire

Address: Midwife Led Unit, Withybush General Hospital, Fishguard Road, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire SA61 2PZ
Tel Nr:  (01437) 773306

At Withybush Hospital, we have a midwife led unit for women who have straightforward pregnancies.  We have doctor led antenatal clinics for those women who need extra care and will be having their babies at Glangwili Hospsital in Carmarthen.
