This show is perfect for Parents of Pregnant Teens or Parents concerned their teen might be at risk for an unplanned pregnancy.

There are many resources available to pregnant teens, but very few available to help the parents who are living through this very trying time. 


When Kelly tells a client she ‘knows’ what they are going through, she means she has actually gone through it herself.

“I was a pregnant teen and a teen parent,” Kelly tells a new client. “I understand your fear.”

She also knows firsthand what it is like to have to raise your own grandchild. Kelly gained custody of her granddaughter when the mother became unable to provide a stable life for her daughter and asked her family to step in. “It was not an easy choice for her,” reflects Kelly, “but I truly respect her decision to consider the child first.”

“I have experienced the blessings as well as the challenges that come with all of it,” she often tells parents. “I have had to make the same hard choices and decisions that you will have to make. That’s why I am committed to helping you on what is going to be a very transformative journey”.

More than just personal experience, she has the knowledge, training and ability to help young women and their families handle the crisis they are facing.

Kelly Marquet-Bodio often plays the role of counselor, coach, and advocate. She is a Career Counselor, NLP Master Practitioner and Certified Domestic Violence Counselor (CDVC). At any point in time she is working with a number of young women, counseling them in regard to their careers, coaching them on life challenges, and advocating for pregnant teens as they try to make smart choices.
