TOUGH TOPICS

I'm pregnant and about to be a single mom. Any advice?

I’m pregnant with my first child and I’m going to be raising my daughter as a single mom. I’m really excited, but nervous to be raising her on my own. Any other single mamas out there who can give me some advice?

First of all, congratulations! I’m so excited for you. The biggest piece of advice I have for you is to remember that you’ve got this! You have made it through everything else you have ever conquered so far, and you will do the same with this. Take things day by day and always remember that even on days when you are having a tough time, you are showing your daughter what a mom is capable of. I don’t know how present your family is in your life, but if they are, having a child (especially as a single mother) can be an amazing to connect or reconnect with family. Don’t be afraid to lean on friends and family when you need support. They love you and they will be a huge support to you as a mommy! 0 Likes

There are lots of single mom Facebook groups and communities! Join a few, make some friends (even before your daughter is born), and they will feel like an entirely new family to you. That’s what I did! 0 Likes
