Governments must become involved in adolescent pregnancy difficulties, and both tradition and laws must alter to suit the needs of young people. Society as well as the families immediately affected are influenced by the implications of early pregnancy. The number of children born to very young women, both married and unmarried, is increasing; around 13 million children are born to young moms each year. Many factors contribute to the rise in out-of-wedlock adolescent pregnancy: improved childhood health and nutrition, a trend toward later marriage, increased opportunities for opposite sex interaction in schools and the labor force, and rapid urbanization, which weakens traditional family structures and social and cultural controls. Adolescents and their infants are especially vulnerable during childbirth. Pregnant women under the age of 20 have a higher risk of death and disease than women between the ages of 20 and 35, including bleeding during pregnancy, toxemia, hemorrhage, lengthy and painful delivery, severe anemia, and disability. Teenage birth may result in long-term social and economic disadvantages. Educational and employment opportunities, as well as marriage opportunities, may be limited. Teen moms have bigger completed family sizes and shorter birth intervals, resulting in the family’s poorer health and a higher level of poverty. Children suffer as well; young moms have a greater rate of low birth weight infants, which is linked to birth injuries, major childhood sickness, and mental and behavioral problems.
