This study describes and interprets midwives' and public health nurses' perceptions of their experiences of caring for young women during pregnancy and early motherhood. A number of studies suggest that teenage pregnancy is associated with many adverse psychological, physical, social, and financial outcomes. Multistage focus group interviews were conducted with six professionals, and a qualitative content analysis was performed. The result of this descriptive and explorative study comprised one main theme, creating a trusting and committed relationship to support immature young women, characterized by two themes: searching for security and love in daily life and active involvement with "the children of their hearts". In summary, in order to support the young women, the informants used modeling as a strategy to achieve self-esteem, thus helping them to cope with daily life. Continuity of team supervision should be improved to enhance midwives' and public health nurses' professional roles.
