If you are a teen and pregnant, it’s okay to ask for help.
Every family’s reaction to your pregnancy is different.
Ask for help – it’s okay to need it! Parenting is a difficult job and you deserve support. Reach out to neighbors, sign up for a Home Visitor, contact school staff or co-workers to ask about parenting resources.
Get to know other parents. It can feel like you’re all alone, but isolation makes parenting even harder. Join a playgroup or volunteer at your child’s preschool.
Find resources…they ARE out there. Check to see if your high school has a Parent Resource Center with information and classes. Visit your local library and recreation centers to learn more about available programs.
