Realities and perspectives of adolescent mothers in their first pregnancy.

Realities and perspectives of adolescent mothers in their first pregnancy. Rev Bras Enferm. 2018 Jan-Feb;71(1):65-72 Authors: Santos RCAN, Silva RMD, Queiroz MVO, Jorge HMF, Brilhante AVM Abstract OBJECTIVE: to understand the trajectory of adolescents regarding the first pregnancy, contemplating realities and perspectives. METHOD: qualitative study, based on the Schütz theoretical framework, with 30 adolescents assisted in an outpatient clinic for adolescents in Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil. From the narrative interviews carried out in the first semester of 2013, in the return for the first consultation of the puerperium, the communicative processes were identified, the central ideas and units of meanings expressed in the themes were abstracted: I was dating and became pregnant; realities and perspectives. RESULTS: adolescents justified pregnancy through sexual drive and insufficient prevention; they narrated the fear faced, difficulties in motherhood and continuity of studies. The realities coexisted with the prospects of family members and partners helping to educate the child to achieve a different future from what they themselves experienced. FINAL CONSIDERATIONS: adolescents experienced motherhood with ambivalent conflicts because they were young mothers, but they wanted to raise and educate their children, even those with minimal living conditions.

Abstract Cystic lung diseases are a group of disorders that appear similar on radiological studies on chest computed tomography.

The sporadic form is a rare disease with no accurate prevalence reported but is believed to be less than 10 per million.

We describe a case of a successful delayed-interval delivery of monochorionic diamniotic twins following prelabour rupture of membranes at 20 weeks of gestation. The first twin was previable, delivered at 23 weeks and 2 days of gestation, but the second twin was delivered at 24 weeks and 1 day of gestation and survived.Practitioners could consider delayed-interval delivery in monochorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy in a closely monitored environment if the first twin is born peri-viable, to obtain an improved outcome for the remaining fetus.
