Is 18 and less too young to be a parent?
Hi! Big question. One I think it would be really good to talk to a few people about, and take a bit of time to consider.
The best idea I have for you is to talk with someone at a family planning centre. Give the Family Planning NSW Healthline a call on 1300 658 886.
There are a lot of things to consider when you make this decision. Having a child won't necessarily stop you from "enjoying your youth", but it will permanently change your life. As a mother, you will have a totally different role to play, and you will have a responsibility and a relationship with your child that would be unique, special, and take a lot of time and energy.
There is no right answer here, but it's certainly worth talking to someone who you can discuss all of your hopes and concerns with. Good luck!
