Adolescent mothers and repeated childbearing : effects of a school-based intervention program.
This study examined the effectiveness of a public school program for pregnant teenagers in preventing rapid repeated childbearing.
Students permitted to attend longer than seven weeks postpartum were much more likely to avoid having another child in the next five years than were students required to return to their regular schools.
The results indicate the potential of school-based programs to improve life outcomes for adolescent mothers and their children.
