I became pregnant at the age of 19 and gave birth to a bouncing baby boy at the age of 20. So for those who are pregnant at the very young age and don’t know how to manage. maybe I can help you on those stages.
Like most of you who are pregnant or became pregnant at the very young age, I was also afraid on telling my parents about my situation. Actually, it took me 6 months to let them know since they noticed my baby bump. Yeah! they noticed it not the other way around. I was toooooo afraid. And my fear of getting scolded block my instinct that I should tell my parents about it. And I badly need a mother that time.
Okay, I want to help you by giving a list of hospitals and their prices.
