We understand the importance of ensuring family and friends can visit their loved ones in hospital settings and the benefits this brings. To facilitate this, we are continuing to regularly review visiting arrangements.
Following the most recent easing of COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing guidelines, we have been able to further restore visiting in maternity services across Cardiff and Vale University Health Board.
We are still required to take reasonable measures to make sure we minimise the risk of exposure to coronavirus within our hospital environment.
Women and birthing people will be able to have one birthing/support partner with them for all appointments.
However, due to extremely limited space within the waiting area on
the upper ground maternity floor, we kindly ask that birthing partners/support partners consider waiting outside until called.
Women and birthing people can now bring one birthing/support partner to all appointments during the antenatal period. This includes appointments in the Early Pregnancy Unit.
For scan appointments in an Antenatal Clinic or Radiology Department, we strongly recommend you do not bring children wherever possible.
Women and birthing people attending an outpatient or inpatient induction of labour can be accompanied by one birthing/support partner between the hours of 9am and 9pm.
Women and birthing people can now have two birthing/support partners present for all stages of labour. This includes while on Consultant Led and Midwife Led units.
Women and birthing people can have one birthing/support partner with them on the ward between 9am and 9pm.
Siblings can attend the ward during visiting hours. However, due to infection prevention and control, other children will not be able to attend the ward.
Visiting in the Recovery Area is limited to one birth/support for two hours post-birth until transferred to the postnatal ward.
It is very important that all possible steps are taken to prevent the spread of infection within the hospital. Together, patients and visitors can help the staff to reduce the risk of infection or cross-infection.
Visitors should observe the following:
Please do not bring any of the following foods:
