If you’re pregnant in college, your first step is a pregnancy test and an ultrasound so you can process your pregnancy and understand your options. We can help with both of those.

If you are pregnant in college, here are some things you should know.
“Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”), 20 U.S.C. §1681 et seq., is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex—including pregnancy and parental status—in educational programs and activities.”
“All public and private schools, school districts, colleges, and universities receiving any Federal funds (“schools”) must comply with Title IX.”
Knowing your rights is important. We believe in you. We want to help. Being pregnant in college doesn’t mean you have to give up on your dreams (blog link), it just means you need to make a plan.
