I hope you're using condoms at present - your post about pregnancy is worrying.
"Mom, I need your help getting a prescription for birth control" seems as good a way to start as any. It's not so much what you say as the circumstances in which you say it - try to find a time when she isn't stressed or busy and is in a reasonable mood. You're right, you don't know how she'll react, but parents often handle big issues better than small issues - the big ones can have a sort of numbing effect.
