More than a million teenagers become pregnant each year. Teenage pregnancies are associated with many social and medical problems. If you decide to continue your pregnancy, it is important for you to know what to expect at different stages of pregnancy and to take steps to ensure that you and your baby stay health.
As a pregnant teenager you have a special responsibility to make sure your baby grows strong and healthy during your pregnancy. Teenagers who become pregnant have special dietary need because their own bodies are not yet fully developed even as they are supporting the growth of a fetus. Get prenatal medical care right from the start and do not put this off or skip any appointments.
