edited by June L. Leishman and James Moir

This book is written for nurses, midwives, doctors, social workers and teachers, as well as students of sexual and reproductive health and welfare. It will also be useful to general readers with a broad interest in the area, or the topic of particular chapters, which are structured to allow readers to 'dip into' topics as necessary. However we would encourage readers to read the book as a whole for a broader understanding of the issues.

This book provides an insight into the social reality of sexually active young people in the UK today. It presents current research and contemporary professional practice related to pre-teen and teenage pregnancy and early age sexual activity. The contributors all have first-hand experience of the reality of childhood and adolescence in the twenty-first century and acknowledge the risks of, and concerns about, early age sexual activity, pregnancy and childbirth, as wel as the particular challenges faced by people working with the children and adolescents involved. The book outlines the extent and scope of the problem nationally and internationally.
