I am 12 years old and I’m 3 months pregnant.

I am 12 years old and I’m 3 months pregnant. My boyfriend bashes me and is not yet aware that he is going to be a father. My parents are going to flip!! I’m SO SCARED! Editor’s note: You are very young and it is important that you tell an adult you trust about what is happening to you. If your boyfriend is hurting you and you believe you are pregnant, then you must tell someone so that you can be cared for properly. That person can be a teacher, a social worker or a nurse at your GPs surgery, if you have no other trustworthy adult available. You can also find your nearest pregnancy support centre on this website – they will help you too. Support is also available through the CAREconfidential helpline on 0300 4000 999 or Childline on 0800 1111. It’ll take courage to take this step but you are entitled to live safely without being hurt.
