How to Work with Teens Who Become Pregnant


Unplanned pregnancies can be a challenging and overwhelming experience for teens and those who work with them. It is important to approach the situation with sensitivity, empathy, and non-judgmental support. Start by creating a safe and confidential space where teens can share their concerns and ask questions without fear of being judged or shamed. Provide accurate information about all of their options, including abortion, adoption, and parenting, and help them to weigh the pros and cons of each choice. Encourage them to involve a trusted adult, such as a parent or guardian, in the decision-making process, but respect their right to make their own choices. Offer referrals to resources such as counseling, medical care, and financial assistance, and follow up with them to ensure they are receiving the support they need. Remember that every teen's situation is unique, and that your role is to provide compassionate guidance and support without imposing your own values or beliefs.
