Pregnancy and childbirth among females aged 10-19 years - United States, 2007-2010



Pregnancy and childbirth among females aged 10-19 years - United States, 2007-2010



Mmwr Suppl.s 62(3): 71-76



Pregnancy and childbirth among females aged <20 years have been the subject of long-standing concern among the public, the public health community, and policy makers. Teenagers who give birth are much more likely than older women to deliver a low birthweight or preterm infant, and their babies are at higher risk for dying in infancy. The annual public costs associated with births among teenage girls are an estimated $10.9 billion. According to the 2006-2010 National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG), an estimated 77% of births to teenagers aged 15-19 years were unintended.
