  • pregnant runaway

    I am 17 I got into an arguement with my mom she told me to leave. I left later on that
    Night so id be able to take my belongings because she wasn't going to let me have
    Them. Well a month later there's a missing report on me. By this time I also find out I'm
    Pregnant but I can't go to the doctor because I will get sent back home. I will be 18 in 3
    Months. But I also think there's something wrong with the baby. I've been having brown blood clots but I don't. Know what to do. If I go back home things are going
    To be very bad because my mom probably didn't think that I was really going to
    Leave what should i do?

    Re: Pregnant Runaway

    Thank you so much for reaching out to us. It sounds like you are in a really tough spot right now and not sure how to move forward. You mentioned that things started when you were arguing with your mom and she told you to leave but then proceeded to make a runaway report. Have you been in contact with your mom at all during the time you have been gone? It also sounds like the other big issue is you recently found out you are pregnant but haven’t been able to access medical services. In some states, even as a minor, you may be able to access some health care services without your guardian having to be involved. It could be helpful to contact a hospital in your area and see what their confidentiality policy is for minors. Another number that may be helpful to call is Planned Parenthood (1-800-230-7526).

    It sounds like you are unsure of what to do as far as returning to your mom’s. Unfortunately we can’t tell you what to do but we are always here to talk about options and even find other resources that may be available. 17 is a tricky age and police may deal with runaways differently depending on what state or county you are in. In some cases we may hear that while police may take a report, if a youth is close to 18, they may not actively search for or make a youth return home. It could be helpful to contact your local police on a non-emergency line and see what their policy is on this. If you would like to talk with someone more in depth about the situation you can always give us a call at our 24 hour hotline 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). We also have a live chat that is available from 4:30p to 11:30p CST at All of our services are completely confidential and anonymous. Please feel free to reach out to us anytime if you need any further assistance. Take care.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
