Description Unmarried pregnancy causes a range of psychosocial problems that lead to difficult and distress situations. When confronted with stressful situations, female adolescents are expected to rise up for a better life with the ability called resilience. This preliminary study aims to explore the resilience process among unmarried pregnant female adolescents and how the environmental context affects them. Therefore, the qualitative method of phenomenology is used to understand and explore the meaning of events of the respondent. The study sample consisted of two respondents involving unmarried pregnant female adolescents (primiparous-pregnant for the first time) between the ages of 15 and 18. This paper is based on the results of semi-structured interviews methods. Interviews were recorded and interpreted immediately after the field study. The results show that both respondents showed a negative influence during the resilience process with no support from the community. However, the respondent managed their resilience process with positive influence thru strong social support from parents and immediate family members such as siblings, aunt and grandmother. Thus, the burden of their psychosocial problems can be reduced and may improve their resilience.
