The health care includes several social actors, this implies that its study should consider the role of the sociocultural contexts. The study of social networks is appropriate to address them. This paper presents an application of social network analysis as a complement of the methodological approach for the study of practices and health-related behaviors in adolescents mothers. This structure of personal networks is analyzed by EgoNet sofware. That structure is disscussed by identifying family networks that offer advices and provide instrumental assistance, acting as facilitators for the prenatal health controls. The social networks analysis perspective allows to emphasize the critical role acquired by certain personal relationships, which operate affecting significantly the health actions of the teenagers mothers during pregnancy.
