Description

Although the teenage birth rate in Australia has been steadily declining since the 1970s, there are still significant numbers of adolescent girls deciding to take on the role of motherhood without a clear or realistic understanding of the impact a baby will have on their lives. This program follows the stories of four young mothers, from their ideas and fantasies about motherhood before they became pregnant, to the reality of their lives during pregnancy and after giving birth. Topics include: * the physical impact of pregnancy and labour * how a baby can affect relationships with parents, partners and friends * loss of freedom * the responsibilities of parenthood, and * the financial demands of children.
