I don't know what you'd classify as a teenage mum - are you looking for young teenagers??? I was 19 when I had my dd - does that count. If it helps then I'll fill one out too - just CAT me.

Hi nikcola - had my first aged 17 (41 now) and now mother of teenage mum - is that any good?
Contact me if you want me to fill a questionairre in. Also know a couple of other mums who were teenage mums - or do you only want young mums.
