If you are a teenager, and you just had a baby, you may feel like you’re alone. Does anyone understand or care what you are going through? Yes! There are many people and places to go to for help. Here are some places to contact:

  • Your local health department can tell you if you are eligible for health programs. Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) is one. Families who are enrolled in the WIC program can get
    information on breastfeeding and nutrition at the local WIC office. Families eligible for WIC receive nutrition counseling and supplemental foods such as baby formula, milk and cereal. If you have access to a computer, you may be able to get on the Internet. Schools and public libraries often have computers that you can use. You can visit the WIC Web site at www.fns.usda.gov/wic/.
  • Local churches, synagogues and mosques may be able to help. Sometimes they can help even if you are not a member.
  • Parents Anonymous has groups for teen parents who are upset by their babies. You can call  1-909-621-6184 to find out about groups in your area. You can visit the Parents Anonymous Web site at www.parentsanonymous.org/
  • Your school counselor and school nurse can help you in many ways. They can help you find ways to finish school while you take care of your baby. Your school may also have classes on how to be a good parent. Your school counselor can help you find programs for teen parents in your town.
