Being a student is a difficult stage of life as it is, let alone being unexpectedly pregnant. While it may feel overwhelming, we are here to help. Learn more about how we can help you as a pregnant student.
Can I Continue My Education?
If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy while in school, you likely are questioning how this might affect your education. As a pregnant student, you have rights and should be able to have access to education. Get in touch with your school counselors or advocates for pregnant students to discuss how you can adapt your educational timeline to fit your needs best.
How Do I Tell My Parents I am Pregnant?
Telling your parents can seem impossible. Even if they know you are sexually active, it can be shocking to hear that you are pregnant. Be prepared for them to have a strong reaction. They are trying to process their emotions, just like you did when you first found out.
If you are in a position where you are concerned for your safety, please reach out to the Open Door for help and guidance on how to handle this situation and protect your safety.
