Hi Stephanie,

I am proof that you can do it alone.

I left my abusive ex partner and also the father of my baby at 6 months pregnant. I was petrified and also had complications in pregnancy.
I also thought I wouldn’t be enough. He constantly told me I wouldn’t be able to do it alone, even after I left.

With the help of gingerbread. Domestic abuse support and family and friends we are doing great.

Fast Forward a year and a half and I have a beautiful 1 year old girl who is very happy.
We have our own place (rented) and we are settled and happy together.

You will be frightened during the pregnancy but when you see your baby all those fears will be concentrated on protecting and providing for them.

Find a good birthing partner, surround yourself with good friends and family and support groups and you will be fine.

This is the beginning of a special journey so start bonding with that beautiful baby growing inside of you.

You are pregnant but you are not alone! Xx
