In 2014, there were five thousand juvenile mothers in France. They dropped out of school to build a new life, caught between the turmoil of their teenage years and the happiness of motherhood.

The young mother is legally entitled to keep the child, even if the father or her family do not wish her to. The attitude of outside onlookers is often one of disapproval.
