Research shows that having a child at a young age can often limit a young woman's education and career prospects and results in higher rates of poverty and a lower standard of living.(4) Preterm and low birth weight babies are more frequent among adolescent mothers and the children are more likely to suffer from childhood health issues or to be hospitalized, than those born to older women.(4) Children born to young mothers are also much more likely to experience a range of negative outcomes in later life, such as developmental disabilities, behavioural issues and poor academic performance.(4,5)
