    Funded on Sunday, 28th October 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    My wife gave birth to a lovely little boy called Joseph on the 21st May 2018. We have full admiration for the maternity team at Bronglais Hospital (Aberystwyth) who thanks to their wealth of experience, knowledge and diligent approach without doubt saved our little boys life.

    On the day of induction everything appeared to be progressing well until our baby’s heart rate dropped suddenly to 60 beats per minute and a decision was taken to carry out a category 1 emmergency caesaerian. We remember asking the doctor/consultant “Do you worry about the baby? and her reply was “We all worry about the baby”. We literally all ran pushing the hospital bed to the theatre where Anna Maria was given a general anaesthetic and within 14 minutes from being on the ward to being anaesthetised our baby was delivered by caesaerian section. Apparently the operation only took 1 minute.

    We would like to thank all of the staff for ensuring a positive outcome. Huge thanks to Liliana (doctor/consultant) and Julia (midwide) along with all of the staff. Everyone was amazing.

    We will never forget what happened and how lucky we are to have a perfectly fit and healthy baby.

    As a way of saying thank you we would appreciate it if you could spare whatever you can afford (it does not matter how small) to help towards (according to Tammy one of the midwifes at the hospital):

    “We are in the early stages of organising a new Midwifery Led Room for our Unit... This is to promote normality and create a home from home environment for our parents to be”

    Another NHS website describes a Midwifery Led Room as: “The midwifery led unit (MLU) is a dedicated unit for women with a low risk pregnancy. The unit is run by midwives and offers you a calm environment to deliver your baby with your chosen birth partner(s) and midwife. Many women can labour and give birth without any medical intervention and enjoy the calm safe environment the MLU provides”

        MLU are great innovations - here's something towards ensuring there is one in Aber.
