I am 17 years old and found out I am pregnant.

I am 17 years old and found out I am pregnant. Pregnant before marriage was a 'no' for me. I told my Mum and she disowned me, but my fiance is so supportive with it and so are his Mum and my Dad. My Mum is arranging for the child to be taken off me but I don't want that. I can look after children they are the world to me. I am keeping the child and I don't know what to do about my Mum? Help anyone? Editor's Comment:- You are still quite young and maybe your Mum is concerned that you won't cope with a baby. For many young women it is a difficult situation and hard work, but often with the right help and support you can manage and be a good Mum to your child. If there is a pregnancy support centre in your area they will know what support is available for someone like you. Have a look at the web site to see if there is anything near you, or ring the national helpline for more information.
