    I am almost 7 months pregnant and recently split from the father. I never thought I would be in this situation of bringing up a child mainly on my own. Does anyone have any advice they can share on being a single parent?

    Thank you. 🙂

    Hi

    Sorry to hear that. I also am a single mum. The father of my child split up with me when I was only 5 months pregnant.

    I was very gutted at the time because I felt I had failed as a mum before my little one was even born to give her a proper family life, But how wrong was I. I just made myself be strong for her and I got through it. I wasn’t upset anymore because I thought your all that matters to me not any man.

    my little one is nearly 1 year old soon and I’m so glad we’re not together anymore because he really has shown his true colours. you’ll get through this and it really isn’t that hard what everyone thinks. Do you have a lot of support around you like family and friends? One thing I’m very greatful of is my supportive family. If it wasn’t for them I probably would of struggled. Make sure you have someone stay over with you when your little one is born. my mum stayed with me for about 2 months to help out ect lol but you really need it. don’t be afraid to ask for help either.

     

    hope that helps x

    Hi singlemama19,

     

    Thank you for your post. I do have a lot of support from my family and friends which is really good. My sister doesn’t live too far from me so I know she will help whenever she can when the baby is born. X
