Testimonials

  • “It's probably not the norm, not what we see on TV. You see teen mums, or mums over 25. We’re not represented in the media. We’re not shown enough. That’s probably why people aren’t used to seeing us.”
  • "My son was born in the Easter holidays and I went back to university when he was three weeks old. … I’m proud to say I graduated with a first-class degree."
  • “People link unexpected pregnancy in young women so automatically with failure that, on top of enduring the pregnancy, I was constantly trying to prove to others that I wasn't going to fail.”
