Hey, i agree with everyone on here, young mums do get judged...i'm 19, fell pregnant with my son at 18 and gave birth at 18, he's now 5 months old. I get dodgy looks from old people who obviously think that because i'm young that means i'm not a good mum. Well...i love my son just as much as i would if i was older, he is my world. I'm also not letting having a baby young ruin my career, ok at the moment i'm living on benefits...but i have a part time job, so i'm earning what and when i can...i'm also starting college in september to do hairdressing which means i'll have a career and be earning money to support me and my son. Ok so i'm on benefits, but i'm making the changes to my life and getting the qualifications so i can support myself and jake...without relying on other people. Young mums deserve as much respect as older mums, i'm so proud of how i've coped...and you all should be too! x

Post subject: Re: A bit of encouragement for young mums!
Hi, I have read quite a few posts about people being stereotyped as ruining their lives by having babies young, well i just thought id let you know that alright maybe a few people do let it ruin there lives, but my mum had me when she was 18, and my brother 2 years after, now im 18 and expecting my first and my brother is at college pretty much able to look after himself lol.
well my mum is only 37 so she still has a lot of life left and currently she is training at uni to be a midwife! she has delivered babies and everything and im so proud of her.
some jobs are best done by more experienced people in my opinion, thats probably why she has already had a load of thank you letters and a few gifts.
-sorry to blow my mums trumpet lol, but im so proud of her, shes my inspiraion
KIDS DONT RUIN LIVES!!!! xxxx
that is really inspiring hun and is so weird
as i was thinking of having my babys young and then when theyre old enouhg going back to college for my alevels ( didnt get to complete them as i had an accident which caused major injuries) and then going on to train to be a midwife
