In our country 98% of adolescent pregnancies are due to early marriage. Adolescent pregnancy keep the mother from education and working. Adolescent pregnancy is within risky pregnancy classes. Obstetric complications include premature birth, low birth weight babies, increased neonatal and pregnancy loss, anemia and other nutritional disturbances. Pregnant adolescents have less chance in accessing health care. Both mother and newborn are open to many problems.
