I am 16 and desperate for a baby
By anonymous on 06/07/2010I am 16, and me and my boyfriend have been together for three years. We are both desperate for a baby and I know I could be a great mum! my only problem is telling my mum, as she has already told me she doesn't want me to have babies yet!? What do I do? Please help.
Editor's CommentIt is never easy to break news like this, and it takes a lot of courage when you feel your Mum may be upset or disappointed. You have to accept that you are pregnant now and whatever decision you make will change your lives. It sounds as though this is a very wanted baby even though you are still very young.
You will need to look at all the options and find out what support is available to you if you were going to carry on with the pregnancy. In the end you may find that your Mum gets over the shock and accepts what has happened. You can't turn the clock back so she is going to have to know so that she can support you.
If you would like some support from a centre, or someone to help you to get over this first hurdle, please call the national helpline 0300 4000 999, or follow the link to find a centre for crisis pregnancy support in your area.
