The Pregnancy Project by Gaby RodriguezGrowing up, Gaby Rodriguez was often told she would end up a teen mom. After all, her mother and her older sisters had gotten pregnant as teenagers; from an outsider’s perspective, it was practically a family tradition. Gaby had ambitions that didn’t include teen motherhood. But she wondered: how would she be treated if she “lived down” to others expectations? Would everyone ignore the years she put into being a good student and see her as just another pregnant teen statistic with no future? These questions sparked Gaby’s school project: faking her own pregnancy as a high school senior to see how her family, friends, and community would react. What she learned changed her life forever, and made international headlines in the process.
In The Pregnancy Project, Gaby details how she was able to fake her own pregnancy—hiding the truth from even her siblings and boyfriend’s parents—and reveals all that she learned from the experience. But more than that, Gaby’s story is about fighting stereotypes, and how one girl found the strength to come out from the shadow of low expectations to forge a bright future for herself.

Whether we are laughing or crying, movies always have a way of telling stories in ways that take us on an emotional rollercoaster. It is no surprise that teenage pregnancy would be the center of some movies with the emotions, frustrations and sometimes even humor as a teen parent brings a baby into the world. Below I have gathered a mix of movies that have teen pregnancy at their core. If you have not seen these films, there are some real gems on this list. Juno is a quirky and independent teenager who finds herself unexpectedly pregnant. We follow the ups and downs of her story as she decides to give birth to the baby, finds a couple through a newspaper who wants to adopt her baby and continues through the rest of her year improvising as she goes along.
Juno is an unexpected comedy about a 16 year old who is pregnant. The dialogue is good, the timing as well. A TV movie with out-sized ambitions — that is Mom at Sixteen. Terry Jeffries has just moved with her three children — Jacey 16 and Macy 12 and 3 month old Charlie — to a new home. Although she attends school, she is actually illiterate and on top of that is expecting her second baby.
