When it comes to teen pregnancies, there is a greater risk of complication for both the mother and child. However, this risk is commonly experienced by younger teens, because their bodies have not yet fully physically developed and they usually have poor nutrition. These teens generally suffer the worst complications, such as severe anemia and hypertension due to pregnancy. However, the baby often suffers the most problems.

  • The baby may be born premature.
  • The baby can suffer from low birth weight, with difficulty gaining weight after delivery.
  • The baby can suffer from mental retardation or brain damage.
  • The baby could also be stillborn (born dead).
