Teenage girl reading pregnancy testTeen pregnancy is one of the most life-changing things that can happen to you, your family, or your friends.  You are probably scared about telling your friends and family, the changes your body will be going through, and what to do when the baby comes.

It’s natural to be scared to tell your parents when you find out you are pregnant.  This site has some really good suggestions for Telling Parents You’re Pregnant.

You can learn about Having a Healthy Pregnancy here, including prenatal care, changes to expect in your body, future planning, and more.

Always remember that you are not in this alone.  Seek help from family, friends, or health professionals like your school nurse during your pregnancy.  To find a family planning clinic close to you where you can take a pregnancy test or find out more about teen pregnancy, use this interactive map.

If you have questions, you can always call the TeenLine at 1-800-443-8336.

You are in control.
