Pre birth assessment

Hey everyone.
I received a letter today saying next week I will be home visited by a social worker due to some information they have received and that they would like to do a assessment and see if I am getting the support I need.

I can only assume this is about the health visitor meeting I had the other day where I told her about my unborn babies father and how he has been really quite unsupportive and nasty during my pregnancy,and how when he sees her it will be at my house as I don't trust him.
There is nothing else this could be about in my mind.

I'm just looking for some advice on what to expect from one of these?
I'm sick with worry so any help would be amazing.
Thank you

Try not to worry, it's clearly about that, and they are there to support and advise you, not to make things worse.

They may suggest you rethink how your ex will see your baby. Having him around if there's a risk of conflict is bad for you and the baby.

If the father is in any way a risk, the SS will want you to acknowledge that and you to put your child's interests first. They can make you feel like you are under attck, but you aren't. They are there to support the child and therefore you as well.
