    Hey,

    I’ve received a surprise of a positive pregnancy test during lockdown. I’m not in touch with the potential father so if I’m doing this, it’s going to be independently.

    I’m in my early 40’s so I’ve not emotionally worried, it’s the practicalities that I’m ruminating with. Firstly, the maternity leave doesn’t seem a lot to support me in comparison to my wage.

    I don’t want the reason to not have this baby to be financial, I’m just trying to be sensible. However, due to my age, this might be my last chance.

    Any starting advice would be gratefully received.
