What we do

We provide evidence based maternity care in line with local and national guidance. Care is provided on two main sites, Prince Charles Hospital and the Royal Glamorgan Hospital, with satellite services in Ysbyty Cwm Cynon and Ysbyty Cwm Rhondda.

Services on the main sites include antenatal clinics provided by obstetricians and midwives, inpatient services both antenatal/postnatal, labour wards, birth centres with birthing pools, newborns special care and community midwifery. Home births are also available.

Who is it for?

Our Maternity service provides care to women who are pregnant or who have recently given birth. We provide care to women, and their babies during pregnancy, labour and the postnatal period . Care is usually provided for a minimum of 10 days following birth.

Can anyone use this service?

Women can self refer to maternity services by contacting their local GP surgery who will notify the Community midwife. Women can also contact the labour ward or birth centre if they need support out of hours or are not registered with a local GP.

Opening Times

Labour Ward & Birth Centres: 24 Hours

Community midwifery care is 9:00am – 5:00pm each day with a team of midwives on call for home birth

What to expect

The aim of maternity care is to make sure that you and your baby are doing well and to spot any problems before they become serious. Most of your care will take place at the midwives’ clinic, at your GP’s surgery, or at home. Some women may be cared for at hospital with a specialist doctor called an obstetrician who looks after pregnant women.

Most pregnant women have between seven and ten antenatal appointments, sometimes more if they need extra care and support. If you are working, you’re entitled to time off work to attend antenatal appointments.
