Purpose: To describe maternal characteristics, obstetric complications
and birth outcomes in a group of pregnant adolescents. To examine and
compare the obstetric complications and birth outcomes between adolescent
pregnancies and pregnancies of women between 20 and 34 years. Conceptual
Framework: Premarital sexual behavior among Thai teenagers has brought
about several negative consequences including adolescent pregnancy.
Pregnancy in adolescence has been and continues to be a problem in public
health. Adolescent pregnancies are thought to be at high risk for poor
maternal weight gain, poor prenatal care, anemia, abortions, hypertensive
disorders, preterm birth and delivery of low birthweight infants. Some
studies have shown that if teenagers have adequate antenatal care they
reduce their high risk status and therefore do not present as high a risk
as older women of similar race and socioeconomic background. Empirical
data are needed to fill up the body of pregnancy outcome knowledge in
teenage population. DESIGN: A retrospective chart review will address the
research questions. Subjects: All the records of teenage pregnant mothers
(<19 years) delivered at Police General Hospital from 2000 to 2003 will be
retrieved for review. For adult pregnant mothers (20-34 years), their
medical records will be retrieved using systematic random sampling to
achieve a sample size of twice as many as the study group. Methods: The
hospital records of the study and control cases will be reviewed for
demographic information, obstetric complications, and birth outcomes.
Analysis: Descriptive statistics will be utilized to describe demographic
information. Statistical comparison between the study and control groups
will be made in reference to maternal demographics, major antenatal
complications, outcome of labour, mode of delivery, and perinatal outcome.
Chi square, t-test and MANOVA corresponding to the measurement level of
data will be utilized. Implications for prenatal and postpartum nursing
care will be discussed.
