In brief: Take care of her

A pregnant teen is in a very vulnerable position both physically and emotionally.
She will need understanding, support and excellent prenatal care to protect her life and that of her unborn baby. She will be having to miss out on a lot of what she needs to mature emotionally and should be helped to continue in school and have friends. After delivery, she will need good medical care to help her recover and prevent future unplanned pregnancies.
