Editorial Reviews

MTV's 16 and Pregnant' is an hour-long documentary series focusing on the controversial subject of teen pregnancy. Each episode follows a 5-7 month period in the life of a teenager as she navigates the bumpy terrain of adolescence, growing pains, rebellion, and coming of age; all while dealing with being pregnant.

Each story offers a unique look into the wide variety of challenges pregnant teens face: marriage, adoption, religion, gossip, finances, rumors among the community, graduating high school, getting (or losing) a job. Faced with incredibly adult decisions, these girls are forced to sacrifice their teenage years and their high school experiences. But there is an optimism among them; they have the dedication to make their lives work, and to do as they see fit to provide the best for their babies.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

I would like this show better if it wasn't a "reality" show.
Leigha Nation
The show in no way promotes teen pregnancy...if anything people who have kids that want babies at a young age should probably make them watch the show!

It's a sad state we live in...the corruption that is in the world through lust.

... a bit addicting. You keep wanting some sign of hope for any of them. There are those beautiful moments where someone steps up or finds their better selves but mostly it's just horrible to see so much selfishness and immaturity and you just hurt for all of them but especially for the children born to children.

The show is terrific. It sheds realism onto the difficult and controversial topic of teen pregnancy. Instead of irresponsibly trivializing the issue, "16 and Pregnant" focuses on the hard-core real-life drama of having a baby and raising it while still being a teenager. The episodes often have re-curring sub-topics, such as parental relationship to the pregnant teenager, finishing high school/earning a GED while pregnant, facing the intense demands of a screaming newborn, trying to keep your relationship going strong while coping with a child.....etcetera....the only downside to ordering the DVD, that you should expect ( I wish somebody had told me this before I ordered the DVD ) is not to see the episode "Unseen Moments: Season One". In the first season of "16 and Pregnant", we had six hour-long episodes sharing the stories of teen parents. After the last parent's episode, we had one episode that was the "Reunion Special" and we had the episode "Unseen Moments: Season One". "Reunion Special" IS included on the DVD, but the "Unseen Moments: Season One" episode is not. Kind of a drag, since technically it IS part of the first season. There are also no English subtitles, so some of the dialogue is difficult to understand.

As for a summary of the stories in Season One, here is a brief synopsis:

Episode #1: "Maci". Maci is an overachieving teen whose life heads in a whole new direction after she gets pregnant. Her fiancee, Ryan, is very immature and Maci is not sure if she can depend on him or not.

Episode #2: "Farrah". Farrah is a pregnant teen who risks losing her friends due to her pregnancy. She also has issues getting along with her parents and finding the right place for herself emotionally.

Just wanted to see that back door teen mom. Nothing special about this show except! I wonder if these teenagers are ever taught how to use birth control!

This will serve as a supplement to my teenager's education regarding the more intimate topics of life.

I would like this show better if it wasn't a "reality" show. The fact that these girls started off with good intentions (showing how difficult life can be being a teen mother) and it just turned into a cash cow show is sad. I feel sorry that they decided to have this part of their life filmed honestly because now (5 years later) most of these girls have mounds of cosmetic surgery, constantly pictured partying and are classified as "celebrities" on most gossip forums. I thought this was supposed to teach others how hard life can be but since being on this show these kids have made bank.

My wife watches this. I don't like lowest common denominator shows that depict a person's personal tragedies in the tawdriest way possible just to garner ratings. That's my two cents worth.

I chose this rating because it goes into the reality of teens having children too young. I like the show because a lot of teenage girls think it's okay or a trend to have children. The reality is that it's hard and will change your life tremendously. My dislike is most of the time the show seem to focus more on the dads not being there for the mother of their children or families at each other all the time. I would hope that any teenager or parent learn and understand the positive you can get from this show. This is actually a teachable reality show and would definitely show how important it is to focus more on finishing high school and going to college. Basically waiting until your mature enough and older to become a parent.

First of all, I don't feel that the show is well directed... it's pretty corny
But that is the least of why I don't care much for this show. My sister had her first child at 16, and I saw all the heart ache, disadvantages, and hardship that it caused her.
I know they make these shows to make money and there is nothing saying that this was meant for educational purposes. And while they do show some of what it's like to be a teen and pregnant, some of these episodes almost glamorize teen pregnancy and that's just wrong. I guess I just don't morally agree with the majority of the content of these shows
