In the Media

Teen Mom is a reality television series that first debuted on MTV in December 2009. The show was a spin off of another popular reality television series, 16 and Pregnant—which depicts the life of pregnant teenage girls in high school. Each episode of 16 and Pregnant tells the story of one teen, starting from the 4th month of her pregnancy until the birth of her child. The show gives us insight as to what life is like as a teenage girl in high school trying to cope with being pregnant. Teen Mom, an extension of this original series, continues to follow the life of each girl as she moves from being “just pregnant” into actual motherhood.
