Pregnant and scared? Teen pregnancy is one of the most difficult and stressful experiences a young person might ever face. You may feel like your whole world is crumbling in on you due to fear, shame, or the effect it will have on your life and all your relationships. Just the idea of telling your parents may seem like an impossible task.
You may be thinking that no one will help you or you’re embarrassed to seek help, but the SAFELine is here to help you through this situation. Denying the pregnancy will only make things worse for you and your baby. There are options for every situation, and we will help you find the resources you need to make a decision for you and your baby’s future.
It’s very important for you to seek proper medical attention during this difficult time because you are at a higher risk of complications. You will need proper nutrition and need to discontinue any use of tobacco, alcohol or other drugs.
You deserve honest and sensitive counseling about all the options that are available to you at this time. There are special support systems available including consultation with a psychiatrist, which can help you make a decision and help you plan for delivering the news to your family and friends.
