Abstract
Approaches to prenatal care in teenage girls and young women who have the greatest risk of complicated pregnancy are reviewed. Follow-up of young Ukrainian women indicated that the majority get married between the ages of 20-24 years old, 95% of women get pregnant within the first 5 years (64% have 1 pregnancy, 18.5% have 2 pregnancies, and 12.5% have 3 pregnancies). During 1 year of marriage, a woman has 1.4 abortions, and 32% have repeated abortions. The incidence of labor complications in young (17-19 years old) primiparous women who had a history of induced abortion is 2.8 times greater than that in controls. Duration of labor is increased to 14 hours, compared with 11 hours in controls. Induced abortion accounts for 20-50% of maternal mortality. Delayed prenatal care was observed in 71.9% of 15-17 years old pregnant women, 55.8% of 18 years old pregnant women, and in 37.9% of 19-20 years old pregnant women. The incidence of premature babies in these age groups was 95.2% 52%, and 47.8%, respectively. An overall maternal mortality ranges from 3.5 to 8.3/10,000 deliveries, compared with 16 in women younger than 20 years old.
