15 years old and 3 months pregnant

By anonymous on 26/09/2010
Hi I am 15 and recently found out I am 3 months pregnant and I don't know what to do.
I have told my boyfriend now my ex as he wants nothing to do with the baby. I have only told my older sister and she has been really supportive. She wants me to tell my mum but I'm scared about her reaction.
I really want to do what is best for my baby. I want to keep my baby and raise him or her but I can't do it alone.

At 15 you still need a lot of support, and it may help to have someone independent to talk through all your options with you and work out what support you will need. If you want to keep your baby you need to find out where you can get this from. I really hope you are able to talk to your mum about it. Perhaps your sister would do it with you to help you break the news. If your mum is not prepared to support you it will be harder but not impossible. There are organisations that can help to support young people in a situation like this. Please call the national helpline if you need some more support 0300 4000 999.
