17 and Pregnant for the Third Time

Answered by on -

A.

You are overwhelmed because your situation is overwhelming. I understand. Really I do. But suicide isn’t the answer — for you or your kids. The answer is a phone call away. You need to call the Guelph Y Teenage Parents Program (TAPPS). This program provides support, information and resources to pregnant and parenting teens. Call 519-821-3900 or check out the website.

You don’t have to go it alone. These folks will help you figure out how to manage your life and how to be good to yourself and your children.

I wish you well.
