What are the risks of teenage pregnancies?

Healthwise, pregnant teenagers face the same risks as any other pregnant women. However, teenaged pregnant mothers often suffer from the following cases: (found this on the internet)

* The death rate from pregnancy complications is much higher among girls who give birth under age 15 than among older mothers.
* The teenage mother is more likely to be undernourished and suffer premature or prolonged labor.
* During the first three months of pregnancy; seven out of ten pregnant teenagers do not see a doctor or go to a clinic.
* Poor eating habits, smoking, alcohol and drugs increase the risk of having a baby with health problems.

Socio economic standing also plays a part in teenage pregnancy as teeangers from poorer neighborhoods and countries do not have access to proper health care and pre-natal care. so young mothers from poor neighborhoods are more at risk than their richer counterparts.

i think teenagers tend to be emotional. plus if they get scared they might want to abort which will only result in more complications
