Can my school kick me out if I’m pregnant?
Universities that receive federal funding must give pregnant and parenting students the same access to educational opportunities and school programs as other students who are not pregnant and/or parenting.
If a student misses class due to pregnancy, childbirth, or other related conditions, the school must allow the student to make up any missed work and provide the appropriate information to complete assignments.
If a doctor has deemed a student’s pregnancy-related absence as medically necessary, such as in the cases of bed rest, childbirth, or recovery, then that student cannot be punished for missing class regardless of the school’s or professor’s classroom absence policies.
If a student misses class due to pregnancy and the professor gave out extra credit, then the professor must provide similar opportunities for the pregnant student. Pregnant students must be provided with any special services that are also provided to students with temporary disabilities (such as at-home tutoring).
What if I’m a pregnant student athlete?
You have rights! Student athletes may continue to participate in their sport as a pregnant and/or parenting student or apply for a redshirt season, if pregnant.
“Student-athletes cannot be discriminated against in the event of their pregnancy, childbirth, conditions related to pregnancy, false pregnancy, termination of pregnancy or recovery there from, or parental or marital status; and they must be offered reinstatement to the same position after pregnancy as they held before the onset of pregnancy.”
Visit NCAA for more information.
I’m feeling sick, what should I do?
If you’re feeling sick and could be pregnant then the first thing you can do is take a pregnancy test to confirm. Under normal circumstances, even a faint line on an at-home pregnancy test indicates that you are pregnant.
If you already know you are pregnant because of a positive pregnancy test and you are having morning sickness symptoms (which can happen any time of the day) such as nausea and/or vomiting then there are several things you can do to help relieve some of those symptoms. We have health and wellness coaches on staff who can help you feel better.
Regardless of where you are at in your pregnancy, having a competent and caring medical provider is vital. We are happy to lead you to a provider near you who can give you more information about your pregnancy and answer any medical-related questions you may have. Reach out to us anytime via text or call at 720-386-6009.
