I am 17 years old and I'm thinking of haveing a baby someday soon. I really want a baby and not only am I good with babies and have experience through babysitting my friends babies... and I would be a good mom but the reason I really want one and not wait for when I'm in my 20s or 30s with a husband is because my mom is old and I want her to know her grandchild. Like I want her to be there when I give birth and help me raise my baby. the same thing with my dad.
I don't have to worry about being tied down or anything, I don't travel,(I have my own farm/Business) and I don't have friends, I mostly am at home because I'm homeschooled. I am financially stable, I have my own small APT.
My parents are on board with whatever decision I make but I don’t have a boyfriend or anything to be my baby daddy so how will that work? Also is my birthing plan to unrealistic for my first time? I want an all natural water birth with a midwife. I have a large pain tolerance. Thanks.

Though you are now financially,socially and emotionally fit to be a mother,sorry to say,your body is not the same at present.First attain the adulthood at-least then start planning as adult!
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
