This prospective, longitudinally designed quasi-experimental pretest/posttest control group study examined the effects of a mastery-modeling, peer-centered intervention for prenatal care on the incidence of infant birth weight in young pregnant adolescents. Two-hundred thirty-four pregnant adolescents were randomly assigned to either an experimental or control condition. The experimental groups received prenatal care in a group setting and participated in peer monitoring of routine prenatal assessment including: a) blood pressure measurement; b) weights; C) urine testing; d) fetal heart tones; and e) fundal height measurement, in a creative approach to prenatal care. The results indicate that those adolescents in the experimental conditions had significantly fewer infants weighing 2300 grams or less (LBW) as well as a fewer infants weighing greater than 3500 grams (p<.017). Twenty-five percent of the infants born to mothers in the control group were large for gestational age (LGA) compared to 16% in the experimental group. Over 75% of the infants born to adolescents mothers in the experimental group were average for gestational age (AGA) compared to 63% in the control group. These data support the use of innovative and creative approaches to prenatal care for adolescents.
