(WHAS11) -- Maternity clothes for trendy young people?
 
It's the latest collection from the store called Forever 21.

The new line from them is called Love 21 Maternity.
  
Forever 21 officials say the line doesn't specifically target pregnant teens. They say they're just offering expecting moms trendy styles at affordable prices.
 
 A family therapist says it is sad, but a reality

"They're there to try to sell to a certain market and the fact that there is that market there is not really their problem or their issue," Carol Doss, family therapist, said. 

The maternity line will only be sold in five states, for now. Three of the states, where the line will be sold, rank highest in the country for teen pregnancy.
 
Forever 21 says 35 percent of its customers are over the age of 24.
