Hello all. To start I am from Canada and am expecting in 5 months or so. Recently I have split up with my boyfriend ( the father) of my child to be. He wants joint custody and I have no idea how that works. I believe he will be caring but I don't feel comfortable leaving my newborn child in the care of anyone else. Is there any way I can wait until the baby is grown more? I don't plan to exclude him entirely but a baby needs stability especially in the first year. What can I do!? Anyone been in the same position??
