Teen pregnancy's social impact isn't only the issue. It is risky for the mom's health and that of the baby's.

Read on from: SOURCE

Most teenagers don't plan to get pregnant, but many do. Teen pregnancies carry extra health risks to the mother and the baby. Often, teenagers don't receive timely prenatal care, and they have a higher risk for pregnancy-related high blood pressure and its complications. Risks for the baby include premature birth and a low birthweight.

If you're a pregnant teenager, you can help yourself and your baby by

Taking your prenatal vitamins for your health and to prevent some birth defects
Avoiding smoking, alcohol and drugs
Using a condom, if you are still having sex, to prevent sexually transmitted diseases that could hurt your baby

Teen pregnancy is avoidable, but if it happens, I'm glad a lot of facilities and groups could be gained helped from compared in the 90s when all about it seem a bit of a taboo...

You're right. Times have changed. The more instances teen pregnancy happens, the more our culture becomes open-minded on this situation. I think sex education and increasing awareness of how this could be avoided should be done more importantly.

Not only sex education but utmost guidance and supervision from the parents are a must!

I second ^^ being that these are still "teenagers" the parents are the most accountable in this matter. If our kids our already adults and an unplanned pregnancy happens, then we could only do so much BUT they're already accountable for that... As for me I'll do my best to educate and supervise my kids to be responsible adults later on.

I agree... We could only do and hope so much. Reminds me of this quote:

“Your children are not your children.
They are sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you.
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the make upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness.
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He also loves the bow that is stable.”


-Kahlil Gibran

Thank you for sharing. I know being pregnant is only the beginning of hard-work and fulfillment.


This line brought me to tears....

"For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams."
