[via press release from MTV]


MTV.com's RemoteControl blog is rolling out a series of short webisodes in partnership with Bedsider.org that catch up with four young women - Jamie, Nicole, Samantha and Kayla -- whose stories were profiled in earlier seasons of the network's groundbreaking docu-series "16 and Pregnant." Within each video, these teen mothers talk candidly about teen pregnancy and contraception, touching on issues like what birth control methods they're currently using and giving viewers a look inside at the difficulties that come with being a parent at such a young age.

The first "16 and Pregnant: Where are They Now?" video catches up with Jamie. Back when she was on "16 and Pregnant," there was no shortage of drama in her life, especially between her and her boyfriend, Ryan. Not only was he unfaithful, but he showed up hours late to the birth of their daughter, Miah, looking and smelling like he'd been out partying all night. As seen in the MTV.com-exclusive follow-up special, the two have worked out a lot of their problems since then and life seems a lot more steady now, but Jamie still suffers from depression. Parenting isn't easy, and she's working hard to hold it all together. To get the full scoop and view the exclusive video, go to: http://on.mtv.com/16pKUcz
