Teen Pregnancy

Another ‘Khila Talks’ Video. I’m actually really enjoying filming these thoughts on life style posts and I’ve had a great response to those that I’ve uploaded so far so fingers crossed you all enjoy what’s to come. As before if you have any topic suggestions leave me a comment as my idea well is sure to run dry eventually. Today’s video touches on Teen Pregnancy. Having been a ‘Teen Mom’ myself I have first hand experience of what it’s like to have motherhood thrust upon you when you’re just getting out in to the world and starting your own life. People are still so negative toward teen parents and the stigma remains even in 2012, I want to be the first to tell you that teen pregnancy doesn’t have to ruin your life and in my case I believe abortion would have been far more harmful to me long term than raising a child. I was lucky enough to have the ongoing support of my family but without that thing would have been much harder so I’m really interested to hear from anyone that did it all alone.

I hope you enjoy it, find it helpful or just don’t hate it.. either way the ‘Khila Talk’ videos are here to stay!

    Brilliant video, thanks for being so open and honest. I wish I’d had the support you had, because you’re right, the decision (especially when you’re forced into it against your will) sticks with you for the rest of your life, and not a day goes by when I don’t think about my little boy/girl, how old he/she would be, what they’d be up to, etc etc. You’re so lucky to have your Ella, she’s so beautiful! xx

      thank you! I can’t imagine what it takes to go the other way, it’s very brave. I don’t think it’s a selfish decision in the least.. if anything having a baby when you know you don’t want it or can’t care for it is worse. You have to just think it wasn’t meant to be.. everything happens for a reason. When Lee and I struggled to concieve I was convinced I’d been given Ella because the man I was meant to be with wouldn’t be able to give me a child.. as it turned out a minor operation fixed the issue and we went on to have Milo but every choice I’ve made (good and bad) has led you to where you are so you have to make peace with them all x

    I myself, was a ‘teen mum’ I also fell pregnant at 18, and had her 3 days before my 19th birthday. I don’t for one moment regret my decision to keep her. I’m still with her dad, and was engaged to him before I fell pregnant. Shes 19 months old now, he has a job, and we have a brilliant life. I don’t understand why some people criticize others when they fall pregnant, especially when you haven’t tried! I got criticized when I worked for falling pregnant, because I personally do not agree in abortion, others can do it, I don’t have a problem with that, but for me its definatly not an option, and because of this, I had some people saying ‘Oh so you don’t believe in abortion? – why not? – surely you’re life would be better if you didn’t have a baby’ and weird part is (sarcasm) is that my life has improved so much since having her. She’s an amazing little girl, and it’s always been beyond me why people think it’s wrong. I, like yourself, didn’t feel like a teen mum, neither did my parents, and they still don’t, and have supported me and my partner 100%. So I definatly agree with you!! Keep the great vids up 🙂 Great to watch! x

      you can never say your life would be better.. it would be very different but young or old I knew I wanted to have kids and if I’d aborted the first how could I have forgiven myself? I am not anti-abortion by any means, I’m very much pro choice but I know for me that an abortion would have ruined my life whereas a child just changed it x
