Thank you so much for your help and responding to my post, it is very hard as a mother knowing she’s so very young and still has a whole life ahead of her, my daughter has plenty of contact with her boyfriends family, but some outside family members have said they need to get an abortion, My daughter’s boyfriends mother and step father are very supportive but the mum is being pressured and the blame game has been thrown at her.. No one is to blame they made a mistake and they’ve now realised the impact that mistake can have on everyone’s lives especially their own lives… i find it hard because no mother dreams or even imagine their child carrying a baby, i have been open with both my daughter and her boyfriend and i’ve told them as a mother i’ll support them no matter what their decision may be. it’s their decision no one else’s thank you again i’ll definitely look into whether or not she’s Eligible for centrelink payments and i’ll definitely look into an aboriginal social worker, i have plenty of support my mum is a big support and so are my family and friends i also have heaps of support through our aboriginal medical services program centre up here where i live thank you again

My 14 almost 15 year old daughter is pregnant, i need some advice on where i stand she’s being pressured into having an abortion by certain members of her boyfriends family, i’ve told my daughter i support her on whatever decision she makes my daughter said she wants to have the baby because she couldn’t bring herself to terminate the baby… i’ve been told that here in NSW they don’t allow 15 year olds the family pension or any sort of financial assistance for her and baby.. i’ve also been told my daughter and her boyfriend can be charged for sexual offences and put on the sexual offenders list for the rest of their lives even though they’re both of the same age and it was Consensual between both my daughter and her boyfriend… i’m absolutely lost on where she stands and where i stand as a mother. i do know that a report will be made to family services because she’s so young and i know the department of community services will want some involvement for at least the first 30 days to make sure she has enough family support and to make sure baby’s well looked after, attends doctors appointments and has everything baby needs. please can someone help me i’m completely lost on what we should do she’s going for her first doctors appointment this week
