Amber is an 18 year old woman who has found she is feeling sick and unusual. She comes to find out that she is pregnant and consults her doctor. Being concerned of her student status and what her parents might think are her biggest fears. The fetus growing inside her is almost 11 weeks and has her own story from the inside.

She wore the piercing because it was part of her religion and due to this she had to missed class and go to court to fight for her rights. Schools are unfair when they have strict dress
Andrea Yates had battled with postpartum depression for years and on June 20, 2001, she drowned all five children in the bathtub of her home. Ultimately the underlining cause of her actions was caused by postpartum psychosis that was triggered by Andrea’s improper use of her medication, failure to adhere to her doctor’s advice after treatment, and her lack of knowledge of coping techniques commonly used by women who suffer from postpartum depression.

It takes around nine months for a baby to develop inside a womb; it only takes one quick moment to change a life forever. There are multiple different actions that can hurt a pregnancy; unprotected sex, alcohol and drug abuse, and any heredity induced diseases.

For Jess, a soon-to-be parent,knows that having a baby will wipe away her savings in the blink of an eye. With the father of the child nowhere to be found, what kind of life would this newborn baby and mother have? What would their quality of life be? Jess knows she could give up the baby, but the thought of knowing her child is living in a world without her takes as much away from her as keeping the child would. If the clock could

Jane was left anonymously at an orphanage in Brisbane in 1951. The girl grew up having no clue of her parents' identities. It was on May the fifth 1969 that she got drunk and slept with an drunk, older man. Unfortunately for Jane, she got pregnant and her partner was anything but inclined to stick around. Despite her friends advice, Jane refused to get an abortion. She had always been stubborn. She probably would have made a decent parent, but disaster struck again for our Jane. A serious of complications occurred in the delivery room of a grotesque nature. The birth was a long and painful one.

The man vanished, and despite the polices best efforts, was never tracked down.
Caroline West had been abandoned three days after her birth, by some woman she didn't know, but that would all change today. After months of investigating and digging through hospital documents she had found the woman who was her mother: It had taken forever to sift through all the papers. But that hadn't deterred her -- after all how many pregnant women could leave a hospital without a child and not have it written down somewhere? Three to be precise, well at least on that Halloween night there had only been three. One woman had given birth to a boy, so that excluded her immediately. The second woman had been forced to give birth to her stillborn daughter and she was alive so that
On the day of November 30,2000, Jennifer and Travis Vineyard’s second son, Hayden Matthew, was born inside of a room at the University of Tennessee Hospital in Knoxville, Tennessee. I was born in November, but my parents were expecting me to be born in January of 2001, making me a premature. I was very small as a baby with only being 3 pounds and 15 ounces.
