    Mama Mia

    Hi there,

    I’m new to gingerbread so please be patient with me if i don’t know how to use it haha.

    My story is that up until a month ago i was homeless and living in a hostel. I was homeless for 16 months. I met the father of my child a year ago, we started dating and a few months into the relationship i found out i was pregnant. Even though i was panicky (homeless and pregnant will do that to you) he was happy about it and said he really wants a daughter. Fast forward to 6 months into pregnancy, i was supposed to see him one day and he never showed up, after days of messaging him he finally replied and told me he doesnt want me or thr baby. Anyway, i went into labour a month ago on the day i moved into my house (very overwhelming) and gave birth to my daughter.

    I have no family and lost most of my friends during the pregnancy, the few i have left i havent seen in a few months so im feeling alone and isolated and just need someone to talk to. Motherhood can be hard at times, especially when there’s no support.

    It sounds like you’ve had a really tough time. I can relate to certain elements of your story so I can imagine how difficult things have been for you.

    Just know that you’re not alone in your struggle, and there are plenty of people, myself included, going through tough times. If you want to talk feel free to message me. I wont necessarily have any answers but I’m happy to listen x
