Abstract

Copeland's Interview Tool for Pregnant Unwed Adolescents was used to determine the attitudes and feelings of unwed adolescents concerning the content and importance of prenatal education. Data were collected from 30 unwed primigravidas and 30 unwed multigravidas who were between the ages of 15 and 19. The participants were interviewed and data collected prior to the first prenatal class for which they had registered. Descriptive statistics indicated that the greatest proportions of both primigravidas (46.7%) and multigravidas (73.3%) considered prenatal classes to be very important prior to taking these classes during their present pregnancies. Results of chi-square tests indicated that there were no significant differences between unwed adolescent primigravidas and multigravidas' attitudes and feelings concerning the content and importance of prenatal education.
