My boyfriend and I have been together since we were 15 years old. When I was 17, I got pregnant with our son, Tatum. I didn’t even know I was pregnant until I was 7 months along and I panicked because I knew I only had one option and that was to have a baby. […]
In May 2017, our founder met a 15-year-old pregnant teen named Kayla outside the local health department in Nashville, Tennessee. Being the caring and inquisitive person, our founder decided to strike up a conversation with the young lady to get to know her and understand her circumstances of being at the health department that day. After an hour-long conversation, Kayla shared that she had recently taken a bus from her hometown to escape the toxic environment she was in. Our founder invented the next five months into providing help and resources to help her gain some stability and prepare her to become a mother. Kayla allowed our founder to give her education, advice, access to local resources, and help with prenatal care. She provided support during pregnancy, during labor, and during the postpartum period for Kayla.
