    Im a mother orf a 5 year old baby. I share rent with my partner. My family don’t live here and haven’t been enough here to say I have close friends to support. 

    I have suffered a lot of depression during pregnancy until today due the lack of care of my partner to us. Each time I look for support on him, he insults me so I have decided that a separation is going to be the solution.

    However, my child is a very high demand baby, and with nobody around looks like mission impossible.

    As well I have a carreer in Engineering and loosing my skills and all my career due to my baby would be very upsetting.

    I wonder if it is possible to keep being a professional while single parent. My company closed due to Covid before ending my maternity leave so I am on UC. Now I am on top of everything trying to find a job.

    Will I be able to have any extra monetary support from the government? What about housing? What about coming back to work as single parent? How can I manage to be a single parent with a needy active baby that wakes up every two hours and poorly naps?
