I'm not an OB nurse by any means but this can't be too common, right? I remember there being a pregnant girl in my 8th grade class but nothing else before high school.
I hope they find out the full story here. Poor thing.

This is common in our country as well...I recall seeing 2 cases like this...an 11 year old and a 10 year old...one was in a group home, other was impregnated by mom's boyfriend. It happens more than we think
Now that last bit always chaffs my behind!
In this day and age there are still mothers of young females that don't pay attention and or for other reasons ignore what is going on in they own homes.
The sad and horrible story of "Ceily" from the book and film "Colour Purple" rightfully called out something that had been going on then, before and still today. However then as now people don't like dirty linen aired in public so better to sweep things under the carpet and or blame the child.
Fast forward to today and the film "Precious" told pretty much the same story with pretty much the same reactions.
