    I not long ago found out I am pregnant and I currently live with my bf and his family. Unfortunately he has made it very clear if I have the baby I’m on my own. They are trying to force me to have an abortion by saying they will drive me to a clinic and force me to do it or I can’t leave the house until its done. I really don’t want that as I’ve had one before and I regret it so much. However I have no idea how I will support myself and find a place to live before and after the baby comes. Luckily I do have a good job but I can’t continue that once the baby arrives. I need serious advice on how to start this alone and how to leave because at the moment I’m trapped.

    Having a baby alone is so daunting, but I can assure you in real life it’s not as scary as you think it will be. I had a good, professional job and was earning well and I knew, I couldn’t continue once my maternity leave was over. I struggled on benefits for a while and then got a part time job in a cafe and now I’m training to be a teacher. She’s only 3 now. So don’t fret
    From the sounds of you’re current situation is horrific! And criminal! Coercive.  No one can force you into that,  against your wishes. I’d try and seek help through the council, contact the helpline here.
    And if you feel threatened and fear they will actually imprison you call the police. There is a service if you can’t talk 999 and the press 55, cough or sneeze and a patrol car will be sent. Sounds like you need to get out of there

    It’s just so hard when I’m constantly being told I’m being selfish when all I want to do is give my baby a good life. I need to somehow find a place to live and fast because I don’t feel safe where I am which is definitely not helping anything. I know I’m not the only person to go through this but it’s helped to hear you went through the same when it comes to work. Thanks
