Consultant Led - Cwm Taf or UHW?

Hi there
I'm currently 12 weeks pregnant and as I'm consultant led I need to decide which health board to receive care under. Has anyone had any recent experience of the consultant led care at the Royal Glamorgan, Prince Charles or Heath hospitals? I've read the reviews on here but they all appear to be quite dated.

I was previously midwife led but required an unexpected emergency CS at the Royal Glamorgan in 2013. It was a very traumatic experience.

As my current pregnancy will be closely monitored and I'll need lots of reassurance I was hoping someone could suggest a consultant or unit that has provided them with good care during the pregnancy? Also the type of support available for the birth? I'm having an elective C-Section and would like my OH to be able to stay with me as much as possible.

Any feedback would be much appreciated.

I am at uhw and consultant led. First baby so don't know what is normal. To be honest I don't feel spectacularly supported or unsupported. But that is because I haven't really had any problems throughout pregnancy. Have recently found out that baby is big so am bring seen more often. To be honest haven't even seen consultant yet. Only registrars so don't know if I even will as am now 38 weeks. Most support and information is still coming from my community midwife xx

I was consultant lead for ds at royal glam as was my friend and the care I had was really good
the only thing would say is the consult I had was quite old and of the opinion nature should be allowed to take irs course.
However if having a c section should not have this issue
ny friends consultant was amazing v supportive and caring x
