The report of a new study, which has published in the Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health, has shown that in general young women, whose sister had given a teenage birth, can give birth themselves at a younger age.
In this regard a team of researchers from Britain and Norwegian have found that the chances of a younger girl of having a child in her teen age are doubled while a living member of her family are surviving for a teenage pregnancy. Also, they have stated currently one in five or two in five families already facing teenage pregnancy.
In the mean time another study have shown that the daughters of the teenage mothers in general want to experience a teenage birth than other young women whose mother do not ever experience any kind of teenage birth.
To justify the entire fact, the researchers have taken the help of 127 Latina and black adolescent females in three different times between the years 1994 to 2000. They have also involved the mother of those girl to answer various types of question including their general parenting style, the history of their sexual and pregnancy time, annual family income etc. etc.
While the report comes out then it is shocking, the report has stated that 54 % of the older sisters of those 127 young women were given birth at the age of 18 or younger, while their average age was between 16. Quite similarly the mother of those young women described that they were given birth of their first child at the age of 18 or younger, for them the average age of birth was 17.
From the report the researchers have concluded that a better education is highly needed to reduce the low teenage pregnancy rates.
Carol Propper, professor from the University of Bristol, have stated “The entire report suggests that this is the high time to take more policies in order to decrease teenage pregnancy at an early age.”
