Teenage pregnancies

Love's young dream produces more babies in England than elsewhere. Teenage pregnancies, now approaching 100,000 a year, are the subject of a video made by single mothers. The Real Baby Show shows what parenthood is like. It covers topics such as telling your partner, booking a baby-sitter and the cost of clothes and food. An attractive jauntinessin the mothers' accounts of night-time feeds and feckless fathers doesn't dissipate their serious reminder that children are made in a few seconds but come to stay for life.
