A mother has been told she will be jailed if she continues to criticise social workers who forced her three-year-old son into adoption.
The woman was taken to Hull Family Court over posts she made on Facebook.
Judge John Dowse warned her she would face prison for contempt if she posted anything further about the case in the next five years.
She had her three children taken away by North East Lincolnshire social services after temporarily resuming a relationship with a violent partner who had been jailed for domestic abuse.
She said: ‘I understand the concern, but adoption is supposed to be the last option.’

The woman is also battling for access to her older children.
She added: ‘Because I haven’t played ball over the adoption they are trying to take every part of my life away.’
The authority says adoption decisions are made by the courts with ‘the welfare of the child the paramount consideration'.
