I had my third baby in November 2013 and found out I was pregnant in April this year. It was a shock because we'd taken precautions, but we knew straight away we didn't want to continue with the pregnancy. We couldn't afford it. We live in a two bedroomed house with three children already and the last baby was meant to be our final one. I was also due back to work in June too and it just wasn't right for us.

I had very supportive parents that helped me raise my son. I married again at 23, we had 3 children together, the marriage was a nightmare ! My husband was incredibly possessive, and became physically abusive. Regardless of using all kinds of protection I had 3 children, but lived with the fear of being alone, he made me feel worthless, I had no confidence left at all. I took the brave step of leaving after 15 years when the abuse was witnessed by my kids, that was the last straw.
