Taking into consideration the characteristics of the teenage community in our areas (the districts with the highest rate of teenage pregnancy being Sants-Montjuïc and Nou Barris), it was important to offer a program that was specific for young mothers in ASSIR centers, in order to improve the health status of the teenagers and their children. Multidisciplinary group: midwives, gynecologists, psychologists, social workers, etc.
Through the activities in the program, the teenagers receive the elements that will allow them to preserve their health, promote autonomy and co-accountability, in such a way that the highest benefits can be obtained in terms of health and resource utilization.
The target community are pregnant girls under 21 years old.
The groups of birth preparation/postpartum have a great potential to produce changes thanks to the processes of identification, recognition and support among equals. These facts boost the work done by the professionals.
