Mum-Of-Two Dumped By Partner On The Day She Gave Birth To Their Premature Baby Is Now Successful & Sharing Her Story

Inspiring! Lisa Burling, from Sydney, Australia, was left high and dry by her parter, who 'dropped a bomb' on her when he ended it over the phone

A mum-of-two has told of the devastating moment her partner dumped her while she was in hospital after giving birth to their premature baby.

Lisa Burling was left high and dry by her boyfriend, who "dropped a bomb" on her when he ended it over the phone.

Ms Burling, from Sydney, Australia, was recovering after the birth of little Nate, who was taken to intensive care, when she noticed a missed call from her partner.

Still healing after her C-section birth, Lisa walked to the shower room to phone him back.

But her world was turned upside down when he answered the phone.

She describes feeling like the universe "was playing a sick joke" on her when he delivered the news.

She told Kidspot: "I’ll never, ever forget that moment. In that shower room, in that hospital, on that day.

"After a few questions about how Nate was, he dropped a bomb on me.

"He was out – he was leaving me. It wasn’t working, he wasn’t happy and that was it. Done and dusted.

"I hung up, took a deep breath and I sobbed on the floor of a cold, impersonal hospital room for what was probably five minutes, but seemed to be hours. Was this all one sick joke?

"Now, I’m all up for change, but this was just too much. It was like the Universe was playing a sick joke on me.

"I kept hoping I’d wake up and see it was just a dream.

"A big, fat, ugly one, but nonetheless, a dream.

"But it was real life – it was MY real life – and the eternal optimist in me suddenly felt defeated.

"Have you ever had that feeling? It’s almost worse than what’s happening, knowing that your positive spirit has been beaten to the point where you can’t see anything good left.

"I knew nothing except this - I had to get real with myself and face the cold-hard facts.

"My old life wasn’t coming back, ever.

"I was, in this moment, nothing more than Lisa Burling, an unemployed, single mum of two little boys under the age of three."

She added: "I firmly decided that, instead of seeing this perceived utter catastrophe as a bad thing and an end, I should change the lens and view it as chance to start again.

Lisa set herself small targets and decided to "dream little dreams".

This led to her excelling personally and professionally and becoming an award-winning entrepreneur.

She even wrote her own book, Dream a Little Dream, which tells her life story.

She explained: "Fast forward to today, and I am an entrepreneur with an award-winning PR consultancy, LBPR.

"I’ve been awarded as a businesswoman in my own right and am a proud ambassador for the AusMumpreneur Network and Inspiring Rare Birds."

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
