Speaker: Fatimah Siti and Andari Wari Astudi

Facilitator: Belle Bruce

Marriage and pregnancy in adolescence affect the health, financial and educational status of adolescents. Pregnancy in adolescence also creates stigma and negative issues in society and families. This Scoping review aims to find out the latest evidence based on the experience of adolescents who early marriage in decision making during pregnancy and childbirth. 

The method used in this scoping review refers to the framework of Arkshey and O’malley and is documented into the PRISMA Flow Chart. Research article search strategies used include using inclusion and exclusion criteria, using MeSH (medical subject heading), truncation and boolean operators. The databases used include Pubmed, Sciencedirect, Proquest, EBSCO, and Wiley Online Library and also use grey Literature such as Google Scholar. 

From 2,134 articles, the initial search found 9 articles that are eligible for a thorough review and resulted in 4 main themes, namely the decision-making process during pregnancy and childbirth, factors affecting decision-making during pregnancy and childbirth, forms of support in decision-making and expectations in decision-making during pregnancy and childbirth. 

From the review of articles conducted, it is known that most teenagers lose autonomy in decision making because it is often done by older family members and is considered more experienced. The existence of programs and/ education related to adolescent health using gender and cultural approaches is expected to increase participation and  role in decision making.
