  • Look if there are any Crisis Pregnancy centers (sometimes they are called AAA Pregnancy options) in your area, if you can't find one call a Catholic Church, and they will be able to direct you to one. They can help you with prenatal care and with any baby supplies you may need. They can also help with counseling. Good luck!

  • Also try to find a teen MOPS group in your area for social support. You'll be with peers going through the same thing you are and there are mentor moms that have been where you are and are now ten or so years on the other side.

  • you need to contact your guidance counsler because she is responsible for you until 21. by not helping you get prenatal care, she is putting you and your baby in harms way which can be looked at as child abuse. so talk to your counslor. I'm sure once some explains that what she is doing is child abuse i'm sure she would not want to face the embarassment of that or being arrested. or you can go to dss tell them your situation, they can help you to move out and you can sue your mom for child support.

  • There is a wonderful organization called Harbor House (google online) that loves to help moms-to-be with questions, concerns, and communicating with parents that are struggling about the pregnancy.

  • i would go to your welfare office and let them know what is going on with your mother and that you are pregnant and she is neglecting you and the baby if you do not get medical help it could cause you too loose the baby and its ok too look bigger standing then laying down also go to the local cvs store and get the over the counter prenatal vitiamins this will help you also a little
