HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

Service providers from Better Beginnings Better Futures (BBBF), an agency that offers services to teen mothers in Sudbury, identified a need to better understand the perspectives and experiences of these mothers. In addition, the Sudbury & District Health Unit (SDHU), which aims to prevent disease and promote and protect health for all, identified the need to better understand how best to promote and deliver preconception health messaging and care among our teen population. This project aimed to encourage teen mothers to share their lived experience, to voice their concerns, and to identify potential solutions for any barriers or challenges that limit them in their mothering. A partnership between the SDHU, Laurentian University School of Social Work, and BBBF conceptualized a project that would meet the needs of all.
