Yesterday I had my baby(YAY!!). He weighed 8lbs and 7ozs. I was all alone for the delivery, my df works out of state, and my placenta retained again! I had to the OR to remove it and it was very horrible to be all by myself. I miss my df soo much but we really need the money from his new job! They wont even let him be on the birth certificate until he is back in NY to fill out papers and what not, which wont be for at least a month. I'm just soo filled with saddness of being by myself in a time when I really needed him. He feels terrible. I just dont know what to do!Answer Question

I hope breastfeeding is going well. If there is a La Leche League group in your city you can call a Leader and she will talk to you. Or. you can look online and find any Leader in your state to call. A Leader will talk to you even if breastfeeding is going ok. LLL is about everything about mothering. You can go to meetings and make friends. LLL was my lifeline.
I had my third baby alone. We moved while I was pregnant and then I became ill and my 2nd husband deserted us. An old friend came to be with me for the birth. It was very high risk compared to my all natural first two births. My baby was premature and I was sick and had no family. I made new friends. Strangers heard about me and helped. I hope people help you. Don't refuse offers (of course don't leave your baby with strangers).
