Being pregnant when too young and still growing robs the mom of nutrition and things needed for her growing body. It can affect the mothers growth and development.

There is more risk of birthing problems so make sure you have a list of vets including emergency vets in case she ends up needing emergency care.

Ensure she is getting good quality food and keep close watch on her for any problems that could be developing.
