Jealous Anthony Davies, 33, attacked his girlfriend just two days after she gave birth to their baby.

He pushed her over and dragged her around their house in an attack as their baby slept in a Moses basket.

Swansea Crown Court was told the stitches she had from the birth had burst during the attack.

Davies was said to be "frustrated" her friends visited the newborn ahead of his brothers.

Judge Huw Davies told him: "You acted in a wholly unacceptable way. This was a frightening experience for your partner."

Davies, of Pontarddulais, admitted battery. He was sentenced to a 12 month community order.
