I’m a young mum and I’m constantly shamed for how I raise my son…so what?

I’m always judged for being a young mum but I don’t care…I’ll be enjoying my 30s

“Coming from someone that was pregnant at 19, had my baby at 20 and loves being a mum, I just wouldn't recommend it for many reasons.

“For context, I felt unexpectedly pregnant and I am pro choice, but personally I didn't wanna get an abortion.

“Firstly, babies are so expensive, so unless you're in the financial situation to have one, I really wouldn't recommend it.

“Because we are in a stable financial situation and she drains our bank accounts.

“Also, I'm fortunate enough that I have started my career and it's something I can do alongside having Elsie, whereas in most careers, to progress, you can't really have a baby, which is really bad, but it's just the truth.

“Secondly, as somebody who thinks that they're a good mum and see loads of other young mums smashing it, I would say that life experience is invaluable when raising a child and it's something you just don't have as much of when you're younger, obviously.

“Third of all, being a mum is so hard, regardless of your age, it is just hard.

“So making sure that you've got enough people around you, enough  friends is so important.

“Finally, when you have a baby, your life revolves around them and I just think in your early 20s, you know, be a bit selfish, do the things you wanna do.

“Regardless of your age, you can be an amazing mum, but would I recommend having a baby at 19? Not really if I'm being honest.” 

Maisie’s video has clearly shocked many, as it has quickly amassed 85.7k views.

It has 5,747 likes, 126 comments and 11 shares.

Social media users appreciated Maisie’s honesty and many took to the comments to agree with her. 

One person said: “I love how true and honest you are.” 

Another added: “Same! I was pregnant at 19 and don’t recommend it. It’s worth the wait.”
