They may no longer be 16 and pregnant – but in Teen Mom 3, four young women find that balancing motherhood with the stresses of their teenage years is more difficult than they ever could have imagined. Season 1 When we last saw Mackenzie, Katie, Briana and Alex, they were slowly adjusting to the first weeks of caring for their newborns. Now, they're knee deep in their role as parents, while also attempting to survive being teens. Each episode interweaves stories of the four girls as they fumble their way through adolescence - all while facing the responsibility of being a young mother. Each story offers a unique perspective on the wide variety of challenges young mothers can face - from marriage, relationships and family support (or lack thereof) to adoption, finances, rumours among the community, education, work and the daunting step of moving out of the nest to create a life of their own.
