I was a teenage mum at 19 years old. I know a lot of people would disagree with raising a child at my age, but it was the best thing my partner and i have ever done.

I am now 22 and we have just bought out first home and pregnant with second child on the way after 9 months of trying to conceive.

We are so proud of ourselves and what we have accomplished at our age.

So to all you young parents out there, be proud of yourself and never let anyone bring you down. Set your goals and you will achieve them :)

  • Congratulations on all of your hard work and achievements… my Mum had her first at 20 years of age and my parents have been married for over 40 years and achieved much together. Wishing you the best of luck with the birth of your second child… may both of them be a blessing upon your lives.


  • Congrats to all parents that push forward with parenting.


  • Good on you for pushing forward with your goals. :)


  • Thanks for the encouragement, and congratulations on doing so well at such a young age. I hope it just continues to get better from here for you. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re too young to do anything!


  • Never mind what other ppl say or think. My mum was only 19 and unwed when she first got pregnant … My dad and her eloped to be married…. Her mum held a grudge for too many years. They moved to Australia and started a new life and the rest they say is history.


  • so true, if you put your mind to anything you can do it. congrats on the house and baby


  • People are all so very different and I don’t disagree with parenting at whatever age people choose to. Good on you for this article


  • Be proud of who you are & what you have achieved. In today’s society not many young Mums have achieved what you have. You are lucky to have found a supportive partner & you both sound responsible & mature in your thinking. Enjoy your family & home. All the best.


  • I was not much older than you and I was no where near purchasing a home at that age, so well done to you!


  • Congratulations on your house and pregnancy :)


  • and well done to you – congrats


  • That is fantastic!!
