Teen parenthood affects everyone: the teens themselves, their families, schools, healthcare networks, and more. In this unique program, several teen parents share their experiences and talk frankly about the magnitude of changes they have faced as a result of their earlier sexual experiences.
Themes include the pain of childbirth, the startling changes to their post-partum bodies, the anger and heartache of being ignored by "no-show" fathers, the exhausting commitment of focusing all their time and energy on their infants, and their regrets about being unable to further their educations or career goals.
In addition, a doctor discusses the physical risks related to teen pregnancy and premature or underweight birth, as well as the importance of proper birth control.
