Hi all

I am currently doing a college assignment comparing how mothers and
fathers and prospective parents aged 18 and under are treated with
their aged over 18 counterparts by various statutory and maternity
services. If anyone can offer any first hand accounts that would be
brilliant. Any information you have about how you felt you were
treated (also partners), whether the experience (from conception to
birth) was positive or not and how much help and advice you received
will be useful and obviously kept confidential. If you could just
include the age you were when you found out you were pregnant and
where you were living and then where you are living now.

I don't have any direct experience, but I have a hard time believing that a
16 year old pregnant girl would be treated that much differently than a 19
year old pregnant girl. I can, however, believe that both the first girls
could/would be treated differently than a 25 year old woman.

To me, it seems like you aren't really an adult until you are at least in
your early to mid twenties. To use the legal age as the dividing line
doesn't seem like it will make your study very accurate. Just my opinion.
