I frequently get comments on my posts, Early Signs of Pregnancy and What to Do if You Think You Are Pregnant, from teens who think they may be pregnant. The girls asking questions often sound lost, scared and they don’t know where to turn. Teen pregnancy is on the rise here in the United States, and in many western countries. It is a topic that often goes under discussed, particularly with the group of people most impacted, teens. Teens who find themselves pregnant need to know where to turn for help. As parents we need to have open communication with our teen daughters and encourage them to come to us no matter what.
Teens who find themselves pregnant can often feel alone and have no idea where to turn. It can be especially scary for those teens who don’t feel like they have an adult they can turn to. I thought I would compile a list of helpful websites and support groups where teens can turn for help, support, information, and guidance.
- The Alliance
- Gravity Teen
- KidsHealth (great site for parents of pregnant teens to find resources and help)
- Pregnant Teen Help
- Planned Parenthood
- Teen With Child
- Girl Mom
- Daily Strength
If you are a teen and think you maybe pregnant remember you are not alone, there are many people out there to help you. The first thing you need to do is determine for sure if you are pregnant. Find an adult you can trust, go to your doctor or go to a clinic that provides pregnancy tests and advice. There is support out there for you.
