Teenage pregnancies are common throughout the world. These young mothers suffer from a higher risk of developing pregnancy related high blood pressure. Their babies can also be born prematurely or have extremely low birth pressure.
A recent report has showed that Australian pregnant teenagers are smoking and the reason why they are smoking has shocked everyone around the world.
These teenagers are smoking because they have read from the packaging of cigarettes that smoking can reduce a baby’s birth weight. These young mothers are aware of the detrimental effects of smoking on themselves and on their babies but they are still smoking because they don’t want pregnancy to ruin their bodies or particularly their vaginas.
