with proper medical care, you are just as safe as an adult woman unless you have an undisclosed/undiagnosed condition which doesn't show up until the birth. every woman has the same chance and risk. but aborting risks are higher due to infections and possible uterine punctures which aren't detected.
no matter what anyone says i know a girl who weighed 98lbs and was 13yrs old about to turn 14 and had a baby and had some complications during pregnancy but still had a healthy baby and is now 5yrs old a healthy also.
Gurl! You can die but don't get an abortion. If you can't take care of the baby give it for adoption. Don't kill the poor baby. It's not it's fault you got pregnant. I'm not trying to be rude but just don't kill the poor baby
Wtf teenagers theses days. Damn!^agree with the person up above you are just way to young... Smh.. but I knew a girl who was 14 she gave birth she didn't die her and her baby are healthy but the chance is still there wish u tha best.
There's like a .1% chance. Most likely you'll be fine. People have babies at 14 all the time. Put it up for adoption I think is the best thing to do. Then again I'm fifteen so i've not much more life experience than you. But I've heard lotsa smart people say that adoption's the best thing you can do.
yes... That's why you're NOT SUPPOSED to have s*x at such a young age. ..........SMH Girls other than you can hold off UNTIL they're old enough! What made you think you didn't have to?!? (Sorry for rudeness, :/, but stuff like this just makes me angry...)
First off please don't get an abortion. You willing had s.e.x and now you have to deal with your actions. Give the baby up for adoption if you don't want it. There is a less than 1% chance that anything bad would happen to you during this pregnancy. If your body wasn't ready you would have suffered a miscarriage. Please think about the baby.
Yes anyone could die giving birth, its actualy pretty rare but its a possibility.good luck honey! I hope this was helpful!(: but please please please don't get an abortion, if your body wasn't ready then you would have had a miscarriage, please have the baby, then if you don't want him/her give it up for adoption, just don't get an abortion.
Look ELMO girl! Don't let some of these fools fool you, abortion can be just as harmful as giving birth and worse but, like I said in one of the comments, only God determines who lives and who dies. I say give this baby a chance in life or you will live to regrete it when you are older, married and with other kids, you will look at them and say to your self "how could I have done such thing" yes your young but, if you new what it was to let it in you, then you should know what it is coming out of you? Don't let anyone talk you out of having the baby Its how you feel. And NO your not gonna die!
Hate to break it to ya but yes you can. Since you are still young, and your body has not fully "developed" then when you give birth, it can sometimes tear up the insides of your body and you die from it... All I can tell you is good luck with your little "bundle of joy"...
if you hav a good doctor, and all the things you need, ur gona be fine! think about it this way, back in the day b4 any of the medical advancements we have now existed, it was normal for a 14 yr old to give birth! ull be fine, just dont get knocked up again and DONT ABORT! i dont wana scare you, so i was leaning more towards the brighter side for you, so yeah.
It's always possible, but having a baby in a hospital or with a trained midwife has a very high success rate of keeping both mom and baby alive and healthy. Babies have brainwaves at 8 weeks. Please don't kill a conscious human who can experience fear and pain.

My moms friends daughter had a baby at 15 not much older than you and she survived but when her mother explained to us what it was to see her daughter there during labor she said her daughter looked like she was practically dieing and that is coming out of a moms mouth so its possible that death might sadly be your case but if not well just be ready for the worst pain in your life trust me i know how it feels and think about when you get your period think of that pain times 100. It doesn't sound fun so why in the world would you have done something like that child ?
Yes it is possible. Childbirth is a risky process so you better take care of yourself while pregnant. Try to eat right and do some doctor-approved exercise so you won't be at risk for birth-related complications later.
Emoforever, I see a lot of bad advice on here. Pregnancy is a touchy subject and people's political and religious beliefs are likely to influence what they tell you. As an educated adult, I'm going to give you as level-headed an answer as possible. Yes, you could die during childbirth, but adult women also sometimes die during childbirth. This, however, should be the least of your concerns. Carrying a baby for 9 months is hard work, and you're going to have to make a lot of sacrifices along the way. You need to make sure you see a doctor ASAP and find out all the risks involved and what you will need to do to keep yourself and your baby healthy. I won't tell you whether you should have the baby, keep the baby, give it up for adoption, or have an abortion, but you need to make sure you are informed about ALL of those options. I suggest that you take a look at the Planned Parenthood website, which has information about all of those options, not just abortion. Then find an adult that you trust, whether it's a parent, another family member, a teacher, and talk to them about it. If you want to ask me more questions, feel free. LD
OMG people, THOUSANDS of young girls have babies EVERY DAY in this country. It is very rare to die during childbirth these days. Babies born at 24 weeks can survive and live long happy lives. Reading this makes me scared for this innocent child you need to seek professional help and DO NOT take medical advice from ASK.COM talk to a doctor or teacher or counselor. Please do yourself that favor before making any rash decisions!!! good luck sweetie
