Young parents offer advice about teenage pregnancy

The government is unveiling plans for a refreshed teenage pregnancy strategy.

According to newly published data, the number of teen pregnancies is up, making it unlikely that the government is going to reach their 10-year pledge to half the number by 2011.

Emma Wykes and Mark John work with a group called Straight Talking who run courses for schoolchildren about the realities and challenges of pregnancy.

They told BBC News about their own experiences of the issue.
