You need health care to help you stay healthy during pregnancy and have a healthy baby.
Continuing a pregnancy
If your parents kick you out of the house and you suddenly need a place to stay, you can go to an emergency shelter for minors.
Shelter workers are trained to help minors who are in trouble.
And even if you find out you have an STI, you can still get treatment.
Asking your health care provider about birth control now will give you time to decide what you will do after you have your baby.
You have several choices for how you can pay for your prenatal care and your own health care.
Smoking, drinking, or taking drugs can be really bad for you and your baby during pregnancy. Try to stop.
Your school should let you leave to get health care for yourself or your child.
