    i am in care proceedings with my 3 year old who is staying with my mum and step dad. The social want SGO. I want him home obviously. I found out I was pregnant again on Tuesday and the social and my solicitor are saying it will have an impact on my position. I really do not know what to do. I am petrified of losing my son over being pregnant again. X

    You are right social services arent going to be very happy and your solicitors job will be made more difficult. All i can say is you are better off agreeing that your 3 year old stays with your mum and step dad for now. Hopefully you are in agreement with this for now as it is much better than your 3 year old potentially going into care . Its important to work with social services and address the issues they have with you if thats possible. Good luck with it all

    thankyou for that!

    i did suggest a 12 month care order with my mum so it can be revised in 12 months time but they are saying no which I thinm is really bizzare. As that would give me sufficient time to show them the significant changes you know?

    Hi Reyvie84

    I’m Michelle one of the Moderators here in the forum.  This sounds like a very challenging situation.  It might help to get some guidance from the Family Rights Group. They may be able to help you move towards the best outcome.  It might also help to get some support with coping on an emotional level.  Family Lives offer a helpline for parents to talk through their experiences.  Here are some details for those services:

    Family Rights Group on 0808 801 0366  They advise around options where decisions have been made by the courts or social workers around their children’s welfare

    Family Lives provide general support to families on issues around parenting, emotional support and just generally coping as a parent  0808 800 2222

    I hope that helps a bit

    Kind regards
