I DONT HAVE ANYBODY TO WATCH MY KIDS WHILE IM IN LABOR!!

Posted by   + Show Post
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???

Be sure family will be around near time of delivery.

I went through this. Luckily my mom came and took her for me in the end. I remember the fear I wouldn't find someone to help though. It'll all work out mama :-)

Where is your children's father or his family? Where is the father of the baby you are about to have or his family?

Ask the dad of the two kids to care for them.

 Why is it obvious? I am divorced, dad is involved in the kids lives but I'm on the single mom's page.

Make ammends with your own family. Swallow your pride and ask mom for help. Or pay for a sitter.

Or better yet, ask the dad of the new baby to help.

Where are you from? Perhaps some of the mom's on here could give referals for a person who could babysit for free, or other resources that could help in your area.

I agree, where is their father? Or the baby daddy? I don't know you & don't know if this child has the same father as the other two, but either way the "man" who helped make the two children should step up & take care of them for a few days.
