Surviving sleep deprivation one day at a time with dd (Oct '11) & ds (Oct '08).
She is so lucky to have you in her corner. I would just make sure that she is as educated as any other mother would be. My best friend in high school had a baby our junior year and then another two years later, and both times hospital staff would not address her. They would ask questions of her mother or her now mil who were taking her to appointments. She was treated as if she was non-existant and most doctors talked down to her. Every time she asked a question or expressed concern she was given a line similiar to, "if you had kept your legs shut you wouldn't be in this position." Ugh. It makes me sad to think of all of the horrible things she endured because of her age.
