If you had a teen pregnancy how did yours and your partners family react?
I’m 18 and my boyfriend is 17 I’m so scared to tell my family...

I was 19 when I had my first child. My family were shocked but ultimately very supportive. I hope it goes well when you tell your families.

I support teenage mums. The answer is no one can tell you because all families react differently. I've seen loving, kind, overjoyed multi-generational support. And I've seen no contact and girls being asked to leave the home.

Do you have a generally good relationship and do they like the boyfriend?

Dm was awful, df was ok. Dgm was very supportive. Dp's family were great. Dm came around before the birth. I was 17.
Congratulations op.

Yes, I have a fantastic relationship with my family and my partner lives with us so he gets on well with my family too!

Imo /e having a baby young isn't a disaster, it's having to be 'attached' to another family that can make /break your relationship - and your spirit if that makes sense?

I was 19 when I found out I was pregnant with my eldest (hes now 9)

My family reacted badly -

Dad didn't speak to me for a couple of weeks - my son is now 9 and he dotes on him and my other two children.

Mum was disappointed but tbh she's a disappointment as a Mum and Nan so nothing lost there!

DH family were amazing and have been supportive from the offset!
