Im from the Philippines too and being pregnant doesn't matter where you from. All females get pregnant (except for those ill) its just a matter who get pregnant first. You can not hide and deny pregnancy and parents especially in our culture should know. Pregnant woman needs help , especially from their parents. Maybe at first they would freak out of course! but eventually the would learn to accept and take care of your friend, max is 1week for them to get upset after taht everything will be fine, even more when the baby comes out.

Im not for the Philippines but I am a woman with children and know that if one of my children came to me with this situation I would first be in shock that you did not use a concom and then ask if your alright. I would probably get angry that you could do something so dumb and risk your life with aids and all. Eventually I would take you to a doctor and make sure everything is good and then after taking everything in I would ask you what you want to do and go with it and support your decision. Next to giving birth to my 2 children the day that I had my first grandchild was amazing. I know that if your open and honest with them they will eventually come around. I will keep you in my prayers. God Bless and take care. Cheryl

I think it's best for your friend to tell her parents. no matter how mad and disappointed they are, they will still be the one to help her pick up the pieces. that's what parents are for.

Better she should tell her parents...Her parents will find out later about it. It cant be hide. That will be the best thing to do right now.

The health of mother and baby is very important. Therefore, it is important that all involved know that she is pregnant and can prepare for the birth and for the life of the baby after birth. To try to hide such an event is asking for trouble and can cause more distress to the mother that being honest. It is not the first time a babe is born out of wedlock and it certainly won't be the last time! I wish your friend all the best and happiness.

Tell her parents. They'll find out anyway, and they can't help her prepare (doctor visits to make sure everything is okay with the baby, getting supplies/clothes/furniture for the baby) if they don't know what's going on. I know that pregnancy at a young age is not acceptable, it really doesn't seem to be anywhere, but if it were me in her situation I would rather be looked down on with a family to stand with me, rather than trying to hide it and having a child that suffers for my embarrassment later.
