what happens to a teen who runs away from home and gets pregnant? How is she supposed to give birth?
there's only a couple of ways naturally and c-section
im afraid that when i go into labor i might be alone. i don't know how to deliver a baby. im only 15
check out a preg counseling page like this....please don't wait
When is your baby due Runaway?
just go to a local hospital.
they will not turn you away and they will not require money.
Any homeless shelter will help you too. Just go ask
welcome to A2K, runaway.
how far along are you, and what state are you in, if I may ask.
There is help out there, but you must seek it.
best of luck to you and your baby.
I think there is a strong possibility that this member is having you all on. Can someone describe a plausible scenario in which a 15-year-old unaway has internet access?
And, as with any aspect of life, it must be paid for. I strongly suspect that this member is not what she claims to be.
she also stated in another thread that she's staying with the babies father, so she may be using the term runaway to mean she's left home against her parents wishes
but i am always highly cynical about these types of posts
using the neighbours wifi is not beyond the realms of possibilities. plenty of free net access outside maccas here.

They have these things called "libraries".
agree with both DD and DP, my post didn't really get my point across, if she's living with the baby's father for now there may be a computer available, let's face it, the daddy might be older than 15
also, cell phones give you internet access, even pay as you go programs, virgin mobile costs 5 cents a page
Assuming you are in the USA, contact Planned Parenthood. They can find you a foster care situation and prenatal care at no cost. One thing, depending on your boyfriend's age, he might be in big trouble.
I always take posts like this seriously, just to be safe. It's also possible that someone might come along later with such a problem and would prefer not to actually post themselves, but just read existing advice. Suicide, teen sexual issues, abuse, etc are all hot buttons that I feel are better just given the positive side of doubt.
are there any university medical clinics near you?
no i ranaway before i met the father of my baby. i stayed in atlanta in a shelter. then i met him and we moved. and the things i say are true. i only asked for advice. dont patronize me for wanting a better life for my child.
thank u very much. people like u are what make the world a better place. and i would never lie about something as serious as this.
