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.
