Teen Parenthood

The truth about teen pregnancy

Health risks to unborn child

Teen mothers may be weary to go to a doctor and get prenatal care for fear that their parents might find out. They themselves might also not want to except it. Not getting prenatal care can cause the baby to have greater health problems when born including low birth weight.

Financial Problems

Many teen moms and dads do not have jobs or may not even have money saved up to care of themselves let alone another person. Babies cost a pretty penny and teen pregnancy should not be taken lightly. You want to be able to give your child the best care you can and how can you do that when you do not have any money saved up.
