    hi, I have just found out im pregnant with my 5th child and the father has told me to terminate as he doesn’t want the baby.

    I have a 2 year old with this person already.

    I’m determined to have this baby but I know il be alone and struggling to comprehend the break down of my relationship aswel as going through my pregnancy by myself.

    My family live 2 hours away from me and literally have no one to support me.

    It’s a lonely emotional place to be in.


    Any advice?

    Hi Sar39

    Thank you for posting on our forum.  I’m Justine, one of the moderators here at Gingerbread.  I hope it won’t be too long before other parents start chatting with you.  I’m sure there will be others who have been in similar situations.

    In the meantime I can recommend that you call our single parent helpline.  The advisers will be able to talk you through what’s happening now and will be able to help you to explore your options.  It may take a little while to get through so please be patient. I normally suggest sitting down with a cup of tea whilst you are waiting to get through.  Here are their details:

    • Gingerbread Single Parent Helpline – Freephone 0808 802 0925

    Opening hours:  Mon 10 – 6, Tues 10- 4, Wed 10 – 1 & 5 – 7, Thurs 10 – 4, Fri 10 – 4  They can be busy so callers can expect to wait up to 20 minutes before the call is answered

    You have mentioned that you have 4 other children.  If your children are young enough you may have access to a health visitor.  If this is the case please do talk through your situation with them as they may be able to offer you some additional support.

    I hope this information is useful and I wish you the best of luck for the future.
