Background: Having a social support structure helps women face migratory processes to integrate and adapt to society, especially when faced with unforeseen circumstances. Methods: Descriptive study of 37 pregnant immigrant women, with psychosocial risk was done. A social survey was conducted, prior to the signing of the informed consent, which identified variables of the background of each woman, their partner and family. Through self-report, the women identified the primary and secondary relationships. Secondary information was used for prenatal control information. Results: 75% of the women had an unplanned pregnancy and one in two had depression. The available social support network was reduced to the family network and the health center. Discussion: The interactions that occur with the social network contribute to the well-being and self-esteem of the person, aspects that should be considered in prenatal care, because of the implications it has for the health of women and children.
