First time mom

I’m 32 weeks pregnant and my boy friend just passed away 2 weeks ago. I’m really concerned about how ima do this on my own because i just turned 20 years old and I will have little to no support from family. I really want to go back to work as soon as my 6 weeks are up but I’m unsure about you know having a new born who’s gonna watch him while I work and then when I’m home will I have enough sleep and be able to take care of us both and then go back to work the next day. Have any of you moms been in a similar predicament and how did you go about it ?

I'm so sorry for your loss ❤ have you considered applying for Universal Credit, Sure Start Maternity Grant, Housing Benefits and Child Benefits? Not sure about the entitlements but its definitely worth looking into so you can look after your baby. If you ever need a chat please message me :) x

I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm not exactly in the same boat but my husband works 15 hour days 7 days a week so I am basically doing it on my own. He is also in bed before they are and doesn't really interact with them when he is home unfortunately. We live in a completely different state than all family and friends as well. I currently work from home so I'm able to care for the boys (3.5 month twins) while working at the same time. Feel free to message me with any questions, I'd be happy to help ♥️
