If you are pregnant…

  1. Take your prenatal vitamins everyday for health and to prevent birth defects
  2. Avoid smoking, alcohol and drugs
  3. Using a condom, if you are still having sex, to prevent sexually transmitted diseases that could hurt your baby

VERY HELPFUL!

"CHILDREN as young as 12 should be taught about sex in school, it was claimed last night, after a Welsh county was shown to have the highest rate of teenage pregnancies in the UK.
Figures released yesterday by the Office for National Statistics showed Merthyr Tydfil had 73.5 pregnancies per 1,000 teenagers aged 15-17 in 2008, up from 69.5 in 2007 and 56.9 in 2006.
It is the highest rate of teenage pregnancies seen in any Welsh local authority since 2002 and put Merthyr, an area with a population of 30,000, ahead of Manchester and Lewisham in south-east London.
In Wales, Rhondda had the next-highest rate of teenage pregnancies, with 59.2 per 1,000 girls.”

The show The Secret life of the American Teenager is actually a really good show that shows how some girls cope with being a teen mom. It’s easy to tell who deals well and who doesn’t. Another show called 16 and Pregnant is a reality show on MTV that shows how the mom and dad deal with the 9 month period of pregnancy. Find out more about the shows here http://www.mtv.com/shows/16_and_pregnant/season_2/series.jhtml
