Teen Pregnancy

PrintPrintEmail PageEmail Page

When a teen 17 years old or younger delivers a baby, the hospital must file a report with the state within three days. The state then sends these reports on to the county of residence.

Public Health and Social Services then can provide assistance to these young parents. Pregnant teens on public assistance must work with both Social Services and Public Assistance. However, public health services are optional.
