I'm in a similar situation, I'm 19 and always wanted kids, though not this soon, but I am in a stable relationship with an amazing man, we both have jobs and our own place, which is honestly better than someone the 20 and 30 somethings I know having babies! Its a blessing I got pregnant now, with my health problems and reproductive issues I might not have been physically capable of concieving and carrying a baby to term safely later in life. I do hate the idea that anyone under 25 is an unfit mother, but the nurses on this board all sound like angels, non judgemental and stuff.
The pregnant children break my heart I can't bring myself to judge a pregnant twelve year old. At that age he idea of consent is just...I wonder how they got to that place? Rape? I know not all young girls who get pregnant are pregnant because of rape, but at the same time I know many girls who were "willing" but the reason they were willing (and knew about sex) at such a young age were heart breaking, they were often victims of sexual, physical, or emotional abuse or neglect. Some where along the line these girls were broken, and its sad.
This thread does make me happy though: its great to see so many nurses who see things like this and help their patients through it instead of making a scared child feel worse. Thank you guys for being amazing, this is a heart breaking yet inspirational thread. I hope someday I can be like you guys!
