Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond

Teenage Pregnancy

Welcome to our teenage pregnancy section. We've created this resource to increase the information available to young women who are pregnant.

Teenage pregnancy - postive test

This section is to help young women deal with a pregnancy.  However, if you feel that your situation is urgent then I advise you to call either the Kids Help Line (phone 1800 551 800) or Lifeline (phone 131 114).  

The most important thing to understand if you are a young woman who is unsure whether or not she is pregnant, is that the earlier you establish whether you are pregnant or not the better. If you are pregnant remember you DO have choices, and YOU are the only person that knows what is best for you.
