So I had the excitment... I'm having a baby! No, it wasn't planned, but I thought the love of my life would be happy too. I was wrong, he isn't helping and isn't happy at all. It looks like I will be doing this alone. I know it won't be easy, but I know I am not the first to do it. I ran into another mom-to-be at my doctor appointment and we got to talking. She advised me to go to North Carolina social services to see if I qualify for assistance. Well I called to make an appointment, but I am a little lost and wnated to see if anyone had any advice.
I don't know what department to go to, or what helps. I called social services, but they have like 27 departments. I already have health insurance through my work. Although it is an arm and a leg to pay for, I think that disqualifies me for medicaid. My income is low enough to qualify for WIC standards, but I am not sure if WIC is the way to go or if someone can guide me in the right direction.
Any help ir advice you can give me is very helpful.
