Amber, Catelynn, Farrah and Maci from the first season are back to tell their stories, juggling life as a teen and mother to now-toddlers.
Amber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell, Farrah Abraham and Maci Bookout are ready to share their life stories as teen moms once again in the third season of MTV's "Teen Mom". To coincide National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, MTV announced that the show is reuniting the original cast for a new chapter that begins July 5.
"MTV is doing their part to keep the national spotlight on this important issue by showing the reality of teen pregnancy and parenthood in programs like 'Teen Mom,' and by drawing attention to how teens can protect themselves," said Marisa Nightingale, Senior Media Advisor of the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy.
The new season goes deeper into the girls' lives as they confront old wounds, struggle to further their education, face strained relationships and strive to give their children the best life possible. Tensions grow higher and as always, the series gives viewers an honest, gritty look into the challenges of raising a child as young parents and life after choosing adoption. However, now these children are toddlers, and when dealing with the 'terrible twos' - each day offers a new lesson.
In addition, MTV is rolling out a series of new public service announcements featuring Amber, Catelynn, Farrah and Maci talking candidly about sex, pregnancy and prevention. Part of MTV and the Kaiser Family Foundation's decade long "It's Your (Sex) Life" campaign, the spots touch on what they know about contraception now versus before, what they would have done their senior year of high school if they hadn't gotten pregnant, the importance of timing, and the reality of being a teen mother.
