5 Real & Emotional Teenage Pregnancy Confessional Videos
The inspirational post from YouTuber Sweet Moms reflects back on her story as a teen mom. This story focuses on her story of how she found out she was pregnant at 17. She details how she felt invincible at that time in her life and how she felt that getting pregnant could never happen to her. In this confessional she mentions she was a balanced teen who played sports and got straight A’s. She was also in a long-term relationship for four years from the time she was 13 before she accidently became pregnant.
This story told by YouTuber Madame Minivan, details a different type of pregnancy story. This teen decided at 15 she wanted to have a baby and choose to have a baby with her then boyfriend, and even started using ovulation tests to try to become pregnant. I like how she looks back on some of the reasons she thought she wanted to become pregnant, including feeling like she was much more mature than she was. She also mentions that even though she doesn’t know if she would have listened as a teen, she wished someone would have pushed her towards school and creating a future for both herself and her baby before the baby was born. This is a must watch video.
YouTuber KingstonsWorld talks about what it was like to tell her mom she was pregnant at 16. In this video, she describes being afraid to tell her parents she was pregnant. She decides moving out would be easier than facing the disappointment from her mom and dad, and leaves. She moves in with the baby’s father, and in the meantime both her family and the police search for her. This is a very raw and emotional video where she details some of the emotions many pregnant teens have directly after finding out they are pregnant.
YouTuber Maria Helene was 17 when she found out she was pregnant, and her boyfriend at the time was in college. I like this video in particular because she details many of the emotional struggles she goes through every day with a new baby. This Youtuber has multiple other videos detailing her life as a teenage mom and her struggle finishing school. She does eventually marry the baby’s father over a year after the baby is born.
This story tells about a girl who was on the pill but did not realize antibiotics could alter the effectiveness. YouTuber BrittandBabe tells her story about finding out she was pregnant and about telling her boyfriend and parents. I feel that this story is especially important because this teenage pregnancy resulted from a girl who thought she was safely preventing pregnancy.
