Teenage pregnancy and parenthood
During your pregnancy, you will be looked after by a midwife, your local doctor or a hospital doctor. Sometimes all three are involved in caring for you and your baby.
Midwives care for mums and babies before, during and up to 28 days after the birth of a baby.
In Southwark there are midwifery services at all the local hospitals, whose role is to offer support specifically for pregnant teenagers.
