Homeless and 33 Weeks Pregnant
I'm currently 33 weeks pregnant and homeless. My local council (in London) have placed me in an emergency accommodation at a bed and breakfast.
It's a double room with shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. It's definitely not the nicest of places especially whilst being pregnant. I know that legally the council cannot keep me there longer than 6 weeks. I honestly don't know how much longer I can stay there.
I suffer from severe anxiety and depression and I feel living there is making my symptoms worse. I can't eat properly, the shower is vile, the toilet is always blocked and my bedroom has severe water damage. I am trying not to stress myself out as I'm in my third trimester. I really hope baby doesn't come whilst I'm still there because it's definitely not suitable.
Has anyone else been placed in emergency/temporary accommodation?
What was your experience like?
Were you rehoused in the end and if so how long did the process take?
Any advice is much appreciated, thank you x
