Mayo Clinic notes that many teens choose to raise their babies, and they rely on family members for support. Teen mothers may also marry the father and form a family. Finishing school or finding work can be hard for teen mothers who choose to keep the child. There are different adoption avenues for mothers, but the act of giving up the baby can be hard for the mother. Terminating the pregnancy is an emotional burden as well, and there are certain risks involved. The parents may need to be notified in certain states if a teen is having an abortion.
