Gen Z Mums On Having Kids Young.
“I’m just as much a other as anyone else.” – Naemi, and Kalim, 1
Growing up while raising a child isn’t easy. But despite the challenges and other people’s judgment, young mothers have a lot to be proud of.

As one teen mother says, “It’s been by far the most time-consuming and hardest thing to ever happen in my life. There isn’t much room for error. But I’m so proud of it.”
This is a perspective that every mother should find worth understanding and empathizing with.
