2 per 1,000 women in this age group is much higher than the rate seen in many other developed countries twice as high as in england, wales or canada, and nine times as high as in the netherlands or japan. Teen pregnancy generally refers to a pregnant girl between the ages of 13 and 19. Pregnant teens have a higher risk of getting high blood pressure-- called pregnancy-induced hypertension-- than pregnant women in their 20s or 30s. Less favorable socioeconomic conditions, such as low education and low income levels of a teens family, may contribute to high teen birth rates. 7 teens in child welfare systems are at higher risk of teen pregnancy and birth than other groups. For example, young women living in foster care are more than twice as likely to become pregnant than those not in foster care. The socioeconomic status of a teenagers family can present further risk of teen pregnancy. Risky sexual behaviors in teens are more likely to occur in poor families, and among those with single parents. Indeed, a study found that teens girls whose fathers were not present in the home were more. Risk factors complicating adolescent births at a higher frequency than adult births, such as preterm birth or neonatal death, limited support, unplanned pregnancy, delayed or limited prenatal care. Teen mothers are more likely to develop anemia -- or an abnormally low level of red blood cells -- during their pregnancy. Anemia during pregnancy can pose problems for both the mother and baby, including increased risk of premature birth, and difficulties during labor and delivery. Regular prenatal visits, pursuing a healthy lifestyle (see our article healthy teen pregnancy), and taking childbirth and parenting classes can help to reduce these risks and prepare a young mother (andor father) for a great pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period. This has been claimed by some studies, while also showing disproven in others. Group-based comprehensive risk reduction (crr) interventions delivered to adolescents are recommended to promote behaviors that prevent or reduce the risk of pregnancy, human immunodeficiency virus (hiv), and other sexually transmitted infections (stis).
