You are a family service worker in a low-income neighborhood. A client has just informed you that her 14-year-old daughter is pregnant. Both she and her daughter are committed to giving birth and raising the child. The client now asks for your advice. "Will the infant be okay? Will there be problems during child birth or later on?" the client asks. "What can I do to make sure everything is all right with my daughter and the infant?"

Write a response to the client. In your answer, comment on the risks to the developing infant and young mother and predictions for later development. Discuss ways your client can increase the likelihood of healthy development.

Suggested Responses: Students should comment on the risk status of babies born to teenage parents. They should note that the age of the parents, per se, is not the major risk. Rather, poor health and nutrition and limited access to resources, childbirth preparation, and prenatal care all increase risk for the mother and baby. Students should suggest steps to assure good health and nutrition and should consider ways in which they can provide the family with childbirth preparation and prenatal care. They should recommend that the young mother and baby live with the mother or other close family members for a period of time since such living arrangements have been found to support positive infant development.
