    Good Morning All,

    I joined Gingerbread this morning.

    My Partner left me pregnant in Nov and I have 2 toddlers. Due to some complications, I’m due to give birth via c section around end of April and worried about carrying the toddlers who are both less than 3 year old. I will need help for a couple of weeks till the scar heals and I’m able to lift them etc. I do not have family and friends around due to travel restriction of covid 19 and also my ex ruined my relationships with people. He still lives in the area but he wouldn’t help because he’s unhappy about the new baby. Both our families live abroad.

    Does anyone know where I would be able to get help please?

    Surestart family centres? Or your midwife should be able to advise y ou.

    Spoke to midwife. She said she can only ask that I get enhanced visits from the health visitor which means more visits basically. The midwife also asked that I contact the council who would be able to provide funding for childcare.

    I also applied to Home Start and will have an interview with them next week. Unfortunately they are only able to provide a volunteer for 2 hours a week.

    I personally think there should be more help for single mums with young toddlers going through childbirth through c section.
