Overview


Sharing their personal experiences, pregnant and parenting teens offer young expectant mothers advice for carrying and delivering a healthy baby in this invaluable guide. Nutrition, childbirth preparation classes, potential labor and delivery experiences, and exercise are discussed, as are the risks of smoking, drinking alcohol, and taking drugs. The importance of staying in school, graduating, and gaining job skills is also stressed. Sensitive to the fact that many pregnant teens do not have a positive relationship with their baby's father, this book provides knowledge that will improve a young mother's chances of having a satisfying experience with or without a partner's assistance.
 

La situación única de una adolescente embarazada está discutida en esta guía que ofrece consejos sobre la salud física durante el embarazo, la preparación para el alumbramiento, el parto natural o asistido y el cuidado del bebé. Nutrición que apoya el desarrollo sano del feto, clases de alumbramiento y ejercicios apropiados están discutidos, tal como los riesgos de fumar, beber alcohol y tomar drogas. Narrativas de adolescentes que ya han estado de parto introducen una variedad de experiencias de parto. Aunque el padre del bebé está discutido durante el libro entero, también presta atención extensa y práctica a la preparación para ser una madre sin pareja.
