A descriptive analysis of deliveries and induced abortions between 2000 and 2012 at San Camillo Forlanini Hospital in Rome has been performed. About 20% of deliveries and 50% of abortions concerned foreigners from countries at high migration levels. Comparing the characteristics between Italian and foreign women Authors point out a median age at first delivery higher for Italian women, even if recently both Italian and foreign women tend to have babies later. Caesarean sections are more frequent among Italian women. Deliveries among very young women are more common for foreigners and for less educated people. Different patterns seem to characterize induced abortions among Italian and foreign women. The former tend to be young and single the latter older and married. The results suggest the opportunity of carrying out educational intervention addressed especially to young foreign women.
Keywords: Delivery, induced abortion, migration, caesarean section, young mothers, Rome
