Young mother unexpectantly pregnant after fleeing violence
A young Mum with ASD has a two-year-old child and now pregnant. Earlier this year she left the father of her child who had committed violence against her. Her current pregnancy was a surprise to her and she is suffering from some pre-natal depression and has a history of significant post-natal depression. She works casually and is trying to work as much as possible to save for baby, but her hours are often limited, and she does not have access to paid leave as a casual worker. Essential supplies would make a massive difference as she is currently struggling financially in her private rental.
