Mothers under 20 years of age

Young mothers (first time mothers under the age of 20) are a target group for the work of the Family Nurse Partnership (FNP). Not all hospital maternity records use a “flag” for first time mothers, therefore the information relates to all mothers under the age of 20; the majority of these mothers will be first time mothers. Of the total number of live births in Crawley in 2013, 3.9% were to women under the age of 20 years.
