Adolescence is a phase of discoveries and conflicts, in addition to the physical and psychic changes, the young person finds himself in a position in which he presents himself socially with a body similar to that of an adult, but still, in a certain way, is incapacitated to determine without the help of someone who gives you emotional and financial support. Given that there is an overvaluation of young culture in our current society, a pregnancy at this stage of discovery may be somewhat impacting in the lives of adolescents, especially in relation to the role of women, who have assumed a relatively less conservative role in society still carries with it a certain responsibility in regard to this life to come. In order to understand the experience of the adolescents in their gestational period, it is important to analyze the expectations and anxieties about these events. Thus, this research aims to describe the experience of being a teenage mother lived by young people who perform prenatal care at the Regional Hospital of the city of Assis-SP. For that, a semi-structured interview and the design-story procedure, interviews and projective perspectives of three adolescents between the ages of 14 and 17 will be obtained. It is hoped to understand with this procedure to understand the feelings mobilized during the teenage pregnancy. (AU)
