    I agree!!

    How do these men just walk away and continue their lives knowing a part of them is out there growing up without their input?!

    Then again, considering how hard some women have it with their exes in the picture I almost don't want that unless he's going to be there properly and without complication!

    Not in Adelaide hun, but I did some googling and I'll also contact my Uniting Care office when I get a chance and see if they know of any other services. UnitingCare Burnside is NSW/ACT only.

    I have found something that seems to be similar to what UnitingCare provides for sole parents and pregnant women:

    Yes! I luckily DIDN'T learn the hard way and avoided all that. I strongly suggest not putting him on the birth cert. Inpregnanting a woman doesn't make a man a father...and only fathers deserve rights to a child.

    Last I heard from him he didn't want to be on the birth certificate anyway, all I want to do is secure my daughters future by knowing that if I don't put him on there, he has no rights to her later.

    I have to speak to some one about this stuff soon actually, just don't know who or where in WA!

    Morning ladies....

    Legal aid might me a good place to start - protecting yourself and bub in the future is sooo important.

    Centrelink will want info about the father and if you tell them the truth and give them his name they can make you go him for child support. I told them the truth with my first and now wish I hadn't cause it's not worth the hassle - honestly. For anyone who left due to DM you can get an exemption for your own safety and that of the baby.

    My second daughter was conceived through donor sperm and her dad loves her and shows more concern for her in the four short weeks since she has been born than dd1's dad has done her whole life. dd2 is currently in hospital. He has not been to see her as he's afraid of becoming attached. He's a lovely bloke.

    Hope everyone has a great day - I'm heading back to the hospital after my night at home eith DD

    I hope everything's ok with your baby Nelle!!

    Legal aid is a good start. If I tell centrelink a lie, couldn't FOB hold that against me one day though?

    Don't tel him it's his. Our tel him you made a mistake on your
    Dates and it was after him.
    Not sure of this would work for you but wanted to suggest out just incase it might.

    Yeah you can if you have a DVO. But that doesn't sound like it has any relation to OP. The best thing she could do is "not know who the father is" because you know...you slept with so many random guys
