  1. Maternal youth or family background ? On the health disadvantages of infants with teenage mothers.

    Article - En anglais

    The health disadvantages of infants with teenage mothers are well documented.

    Because poor and minority women are disproportionately represented among teen mothers, differences in infant health by maternal age may reflect family background (pre-childbearing) characteristics rather than the effects of maternal age.

    To control for differences in family background, the authors compared birth outcomes and maternal behaviors that could affect fetal or infant health among sisters in the US National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (1979-1988).
