Abstract: Evaluative research aimed to evaluate the quality of care during labor and live births to teenagers in a health institution in Teresina, Piauí and identify factors associated with quality of care. We analyzed 174 medical records and interviewed 44 teenagers from May to July 2010. Based on recommendations from the Ministry of Health, indicators related to the care process were selected. The quality of care was categorized as more appropriate, adequate, intermediate and inadequate. We used univariate and bivariate descriptive statistics, adopting a significance level of 5%. It was found that labor and delivery care was adequate for 24.7% of teenagers. It was found that teenagers who had less than six prenatal consultations or a history of cesarean delivery care received intermediate or inadequate birth care. There is a need to improve the quality and humanization of care during labor and in the process of parturition.
