    I get visits from the health visitor, the midwife and this social worker, she has not made it clear as of why there is such a big concern and when I ask she keeps changing her reason why, when on paper it states because of my age and experience?

    Sorry to be blunt but you need to look honestly in the mirror at your own situation. Child protection do not show an interest in someone for no reason. Until you do this words from strangers online are of no use at all.

    Default The problem with social

    How did the social worker become involved though? Was it just after you had your baby? They can work in accordance with your midwife and health visitor, perhaps your midwife made a suggestion that you could use the ongoing support/help/supervision, whatever the case may be, it's very hard to tell with the information you have given.

    Edit- Sorry I only just read your second last post. I have no idea how to help because I'm confused, seems you might be in a different country where the health system works differently.

    OP is in UK, obviously different set up to Aus. Social worker may not actually be CPS

    Here's the nhs link for 'social worker.'

    http://www.nhs.uk/nhsengland/aboutnh...-services.aspx

    OP perhaps you should check out 'netmums' for help from people who know the UK system?

    It's not child protection, it's child in need and I have a report, and it clearly states in black and white because I'm young and because of my experience

    I think the problem is that you live in the UK. While the Hub is a very inclusive and helpful place for parenting, advice and support (in fact there's even a young parents section you might want to pop in and say hello to everyone), there aren't many people who can really help with the UK social services advice because the two countries have different laws and regulations.
    You'll find heaps of support and lovely hubbers to talk to, it's a great place for support especially when things are hard, which they seem to be.

    Long story short: While the Hub is an excellent place to get support and make friends, there aren't that many people who can help with this particular problem, not because they don't want to but because very few people will be able to. I hope everything gets better for you though and I send hugs.
