Synopsis:
Teenage mothers are more likely to have preterm labor and delivery, anemia, preeclampsia, and other complications; and babies born to teenage mothers have higher risks for low birth weight, serious health problems, and even death. In addition, some pregnant teens may lack access to proper nutrition or may participate in risky activities that can have a negative effect on maternal and fetal health. Teenage mothers-and fathers-also face social and emotional risks, and they are less likely than their peers to finish school and find well-paying jobs. Pregnancy Information For Teens, 3rd Edition, provides information about prenatal care, nutrition, fetal development, and preparing for labor and delivery. It includes facts about abortion and adoption, as well as information for teens who choose to parent their infants, along with other helpful information.
