Pregnant with alcoholic mother
I’m currently 35 weeks pregnant with my first child. My mother has been an alcoholic since before I was born and has been on and off with recovery all my life. I’ve been hoping for my mother to be there for me through this pregnancy, knowing how hard it’s been for my partner and I to get to where we are now. She has missed every milestone throughout the pregnancy, from the announcement, to the gender reveal; to this week when I needed her more than ever, when I was rushed in to hospital needing fluid to be drain which could have caused an emergency c-section. The day before this happens she puts her head back into a bottle “because she’s worried about me and the baby” I haven’t spoken to her since and I don’t know what to do. At 30 years old I still need my mum and she’s not there for me. What I do? What do I say?
