Resources for Pregnant Teens

For those of you looking for the old Teen Gravid blog with my personal experiences as a pregnant teen (and now, teen mother!), I have moved it here. I also share resources for finding name-brand baby products for free or at affordable prices. Once again, a big thank-you to all my loyal (and helpful!) readers, and I hope you follow the new blog.

I am renewing this blog to provide websites and resources for others who are in a similar situation I am in/ was in-- teen moms, pregnant high schoolers and college students, etc. Hopefully, soon Teen Gravid will be more organized with different sections for resources for different situations (counseling, adoption services, social services for keeping your baby, etc), but for now, here is a hodge podge of resources I've found useful:

Parents, Anonymous: If you didn't have that great of a childhood and want to keep from repeating the nightmare with your own children, this is a good resource for you.

Women, Infants, Children: A government program providing food and nutrition counseling for pregnant women, women with infants, breastfeeding women, and children.

Planned Parenthood: If you need to find out whether or not you're pregnant, or just found out and don't know what to do, Planned Parenthood can help.

Parents as Teachers: Sign up for this free service before you give birth to help your child reach developmental milestones and ensure he or she has the best chances in life.

Birth Mom Missions: Advice and support if you're thinking about adoption.

Hopefully these resources can help you out if you need them, and I should have some more up soon (with some more organization, so you can find exactly the resources that will answer the questions you have and provide you with the information you need). And if you ever need to talk, leave a message and some way I can contact you.

In the meantime... Good luck. You CAN make it through this!
