Most teenagers who become pregnant decide to continue the pregnancy.
It's important to connect them with early prenatal care and to encourage a healthy lifestyle—a well-balanced diet, daily exercise, and staying away from tobacco, alcohol, and drugs.
To help sort through the life-changing and emotional decisions they face, pregnant adolescents need straightforward information and judgement-free guidance and support.
These options usually include having and raising the baby, making plans for relatives or an adoptive family to raise the baby, or terminating the pregnancy.
