TLC is partnering with Power to Decide, the campaign to prevent unplanned pregnancy, to help viewers use UNEXPECTED as a way to spark meaningful conversations on unplanned pregnancies. There have been a historic decline in teen pregnancy and meaningful dip in unplanned pregnancy over the past two decades, according to Power to Decide. However, progress doesn't mean victory: nearly one in four girls will get pregnant by age 20, and children of teen moms are more likely to become teen parents themselves. Based on themes covered in the show, Power to Decide is creating discussion-starters, information and tips for young people and their parents, mentors and allies to jump-start open conversations and ensure all young people have the power to decide if, when, and under what circumstances to get pregnant and have a child.
