FARIA, Gabriela Ribeiro Barros de  e  MAGALHAES, Celina Maria Colino. Correlations between maternity in adolescence and the birth of a premature and low weight baby: an integrative literature review. Mudanças [online]. 2020, vol.28, n.1, pp. 63-73. ISSN 0104-3269.

The present work presents an integrative review of the national and international scientific production, of the last five years, on existing studies in the literature that address the correlation between motherhood in adolescence and the birth of a premature and low weight baby. Publications indexed in the Lilacs, Pubmed Central, SciELO (Web of Science), and Scopus (Elsevier) databases were accessed through the descriptors: adolescent, mother, baby or infant newborn, preterm and low birth weight, in English and Portuguese languages. Among 206 publications found, 11 papers were selected according to the inclusion criteria and by evaluation among judges, which allowed to understand specific themes of adolescent motherhood in the face of premature birth and low birth weight. Some themes were highlighted as: emotional aspects of mothers, psychosocial issues, association between maternal BMI (body mass index - weight) (pre and peri gestational), relative rates of premature birth and or low weight of the baby and the risk of motherhood adolescent and his comorbidities. It is concluded that follow-up programs for the prevention of adolescent pregnancy, health education are essential to minimize the rates of premature births and low birth weight, as well as prenatal care directed to problems related to the adolescent's health condition.
