A Program for Pregnant Teens

Babies born to teenage mothers are at higher risk for health related problems. Risk factors include: pre-term babies, babies born with immediately identifiable congenital abnormalities and a higher risk for low-birth weight babies. Pregnant teens themselves are also at greater risk, including, for example anemia, hypertension and depressive disorders..

Prenatal Supper Clubs run 2 hours each week. Participants may come as early as possible during their pregnancy and can attend until their babies are 6 months of age. Participants who require assistance with public transportation to attend the program will be given 2 bus tickets each week.
