Pregnancy & Depression

New here and i could just use some help and kind words. I’m currently pregnant and suffering from depression. I’m already a mom of 1 and now with a new baby on the way I’m not sure how i will manage. My boyfriend and i broke up and he acts as if me or my pregnancy exists. I feel so alone and even worse because I’m feeling like i don’t want my baby. Idk what to do. I can’t be a single mom of 2 kids. I’m so broken 😞

Hello and welcome !

I’m so sorry you’re going through so much atm. Being a single mum and pregnant must be hugely overwhelming and it’s no wonder you feel the way you do. I’m really sorry your relationship has ended at this time too.

Have you spoken to your dr/midwife health visitor about how you’re feeling. They can support you and also refer you to a perinatal mental health team who specialise in treating and supporting women with depression, anxiety etc .

I promise you you will get through this. Often the fear of how you’ll cope is far worse than the reality. I’m a single mum too and when my ex and I parted I was petrified . As horrendous as it must feel atm to have split up from your partner and how he’s treating you is possibly a sign the relationship is no good - you deserve far far more .

Please do keep talking x
