My 15-year-old daughter is pregnant: Will DHS really get involved?

We just found out my 15yr old daughter is pregnant. Took her up to get her established with maternity care & after she, of course, tested positive for pregnancy, the nurse informed us that because my daughter is only 15, she must notify DHR/CPS. Has anyone had this experience? I am curious as to what to expect & how long they’re going to be involved in our family life now? We just found out my 15yr old daughter is pregnant.

I mean there’s plenty of pregnant teens, they may ask questions like about the father probably to make sure it wasn’t forced or anything

I’ve never heard of that at all. Unless she is saying it was from an abuse/assault situation then they can’t even really do that. I’d find a new doctor.

Wtf? I got pregnant at 16 . I’m now 23 with and almost 7 year old never. Was she alone with them??? Could your daughter of said something too them??

I got pregnant at 15 no one ever called cps on me an my parents. What state is this?

I was 14 and pregnant and I didn’t have to go through cps or my family

Um, find a new dr.
There is absolutely no reason for that.

It’s more to make sure she wasn’t raped, just go through the process and it’ll be over soon, they won’t stick around unless there is a reason

Never heard of such. I got pregnant when I was 15, I miscarried, but no one was ever called on my parents

New dr or was she abused or raped and she’s afraid to tell you maybe? Then that would explain why the dr informed you about contacting social services

That doesnt sound right. I would find a new doctor and contact a lawyer

I got pregnant at 15, now 26. Not once did I ever get questioned or anything like that. That’s crazy

All they do is “home checks” to ensure the baby is properly taken care of

Never heard of this before! Maybe your state legal age is 16 for pregnant teens

I was 16. Never had cps involved.

Not necessarily. Unless she spoke with the Dr/nurses and it could be a older boyfriend. Working with planned parenthood I deal with thia althea timw

Once the government is involved they are like getting rid of bed bugs. They will likely be in your business for a while.

Definitely new doctor

I would imagine it depends on the state. Age of consent is 17 though. I still see no reason to have child services involved, unless you as her parent feel it’s necessary

It doesn’t matter. They just want to make sure the child is being born into a family that can care for it. Idk why this is a shocker to everyone. Most 15 yr Olds don’t live on their own Nd care for themselves therefore they just want to make sure that this baby will be cared for. It’s a good thing they check. All they’ll do is ask some questions and make sure her living environment is safe and that’s it
