Hi all!
Recently became a single mother to a 2 year old boy! Finding it hard to adapt and don’t have a great social life!
Be lovely to meet some new single mummy’s and have some support :)

Hello! I'm in the same boat, although I've been a single mother since my (also 2 year old) son was born. I can imagine that it must be really overwhelming- although it was VERY short lived I was living with an ex partner for a while and it was difficult to re-adjust after he left. I definitely hear you on the social life too, babysitting is expensive if you've not got a willing family member/friend around to help out. Have you got many friends who have kids who can help out/support you?

Hi both! I'm a single mum to a 2 yr old dd. There is a fantastic ongoing thread here for single parents. We chat about our days, parenting tips and troubles and have a good laugh. It has really helped me through some tough times being alone. Everyone is welcome but it is on a thread that can't be searched normally. Currently it's on OTBT(off the beaten track) topic and our new thread is called Hugh ho ho ho'ing into the festive season. Please come and say hi!

I m 41 going to 42 and just found out I m pregnant. I have a 13 year old daughter and a 15 year old son.
3 years ago I had a miscarriage and lost my partner through cancer on same month.
I m really struggling to decide whether I keep this baby or not . I ve always been against abortion although I would agree if it happens on young girls
My current partner said he ll be there for the child but not for me.
I m looking for some advice

And for all of you single mums you can do it . I raised both my kids mostly on my own until I met my late partner
He was an awesome stepdad to them until we lost him
I don't even have any family here as they're all abroad..
It's not easy but so rewarding..
Good luckSmile

My baby is 5 months. I became a single mam at 2.5 months. I'm having a hard time and feel really down. I don't know anyone with kids. It'd be good to connect with some people Confused
