Separating , After Separation

My partner and i recently split acrymonously. She has started to be vindictive and very difficult. She banned me from one of the 4D scans i purchased and then reluctantly sent a poor picture - though i paid for videos. I do not even know if the scanned picture is of my baby. she is approx 19 weeks pregnant. she is claiming to change her phone, email and move in the not to distant future. and eliminate me from the life of my baby - can i get advice from anyone out there, i am at my wits end

    Of course you should be involved in your child's life unless there is a very good reason why not. Does your partner feel that there is a good reason for the position she has taken?
    It sounds like communication between you is difficult and may become more so. Therefore it may be a good thing that she is in the relatively early stages of her pregnancy as there's still time to try and resolve things before the baby arrives.
    I want to suggest to you that you consider trying mediation and here's a link to some information about it:

    You could try making contact with your local service and see what they say about trying to engage your partner in a discussion at this relatively early stage. They would begin by seeing each of you separately anyway.
