Teen Parent Facts

95% of teen pregnancies are  
unintended, and nearly one-third
end in abortion.

1/3 pregnant teens receive
inadequate prenatal care; babies
born to young mothers are more
likely to be of low birth weight.

1/4 of teenage mothers have a  
second baby within 2 years of
giving birth to their first.

Of the total number of teen   
pregnancies, approximately
half occur with eighteen or
nineteen-year-olds.

Many pregnant teens too often  
have poor eating habits, and
may smoke, drink alcohol and
take drugs, thus increasing the  
risk that their babies will be
born with health problems.

Infant mortality rates and  
infant abuse (especially
shaken baby syndrome) are
much higher among teen
parents.

Of the top ten disciplinary  
problems confronting public
school teachers, pregnancy is
third.

One in three mothers drop out
of high school. Teens may not  
have developed stress of raising  
an infant.

Pregnancy and parenting are  
cited as major reasons females
drop out of school.
