Why do teenagers become pregnant? Teenage pregnancy is often a cause and consequence of social exclusion. The risk of teenage parenthood is greatest for young people who have grown up in poverty and

disadvantage, or those with poor educational attainment. Overall teenage parenthood is more common in areas of deprivation and poverty. Why do teenagers need extra support? Teenage parents tend to have poor antenatal health, lower birth rate babies and higher infant mortality rates. Their own health and their childrens is worse than average.

Teenage parents tend to remain poor and are disproportionately likely to suffer significant relationship breakdown.
