Im 6 months pregnant and its just me and my 2 kids(age 3 and 5).I live by myself and I dont have many friends,especially that live close by and I doubt my family will be around when I go into labor.And I dont have money to pay for a babysitter.I called the hospital to see if they knew of any or if they could help in that situation and they pretty much said that they wouldnt have anybody there to watch them while I was in labor.Any suggestions???

Join a church, get to know some people and ask for help? That's all I've got.

Hmmm. Where are you located? I know I use a midwife and she offers for her dd to babysit during births. Get in touch with the hs childcare classes and see if they can suggest someone.

See if there are any single mother's groups in your area. Often times it is other single moms that help me the most even thought they are the busiest. Good luck, it will come together. There has to be someone who can help. I am so sorry that you are feeling this alone...keep posting. XO

Who watched your kids now? Do you work outside the home? Honestly you need to make arrangements for family or the kids dad's to take the kids. Where is the father? You have your hands full 2 kids one on the way if no father involvement.
