I gave birth to my daughter when I was 20-years-old.
It’s something which completely changed my life, but I love being a mum.
Unfortunately, I think young parents often get negatively stereotyped by those who don’t think they’re capable of looking after a child.
People make certain comments or look at you in a funny way, which can be really hurtful.
My team and I are working with Fixers to show that having a child at an early age doesn’t automatically make you a bad mum.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
Stepping Stones North Edinburgh
Our group run peer education sessions at the organisation. Stepping Stones helped to facilitate the project.
Fixers is a project of the Public Service Broadcasting Trust, funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund, and featured on ITV.
