    Hi @minniemouse welcome to the community, I am sorry to hear you are having such a tough time.

    Who has taken your daughter? What reason have they given? Do you want to give us a bit of background? Or if you would rather speak to someone in person you can call the Scope helpline on 0808 800 3333.

    I'm not sure this NHS page.
    is the best. And it has a link to net mums. I don't get on with the sire somehow even without reading a lot of it. The page is too busy for one thing.

    Anyway,  I'm wondering if legal mediation might help. I don't know how you'd fund that, though there's internet fundraising account type places as well as any income you've got and possible grant aid from somewhere maybe!?

    I'm not sure its legal for them to just take your child off you. A social services assessment if not already done might find ways to support you, though they can be the enemy especially in listening to a worried family member. There's a really good drama about a wheelchair user mum and boyfriend fighting to keep their baby but might be all too close to the bone.
