Hello, I'm A, 16 and I'm 6 weeks pregnant. I need help.
Editor’s note: Thanks for writing in…Firstly, you need to know that you are entitled to make a decision for yourself. You don’t have to do what anyone else wants because you are the one who has to live with the choice you make. No-one can force you into doing anything you don’t want to do. Secondly, it’s important that you have accurate information about all the options open to you – parenting, abortion or making an adoption plan for your baby – so that you can decide what you want. Thirdly, you need time and space to talk through not only what your head is saying about your situation but also what your heart is saying. Then you can make an informed decision based on information and an exploration of your feelings, rather than fear and panic. You can visit your nearest pregnancy centre, or ring the helpline or use Online Advisor for the information you need and the opportunity to talk it through. We’ll be thinking of you.
