woman looking for pregnancy support

Finding out you’re unexpectedly pregnant while still in school can be overwhelming, and you’re likely feeling all the feelings right now—this is normal, and we understand what you’re going through. But you’re not in this alone; there are support systems available to help you feel encouraged as you navigate your pregnancy while in school.

This article will explore tips for finding these support systems. But if you want a safe space to talk about your pregnancy and learn about free resources that are here to help, contact MiraVia today to schedule a free, confidential appointment.

Search Out Support Groups on Campus

Being pregnant while still in school can feel isolating. While other students are going out and socializing, you’re likely feeling tired, nauseous, and everything in between. But you’re not alone in your experience. Other women are in the same boat, and connecting with them will help you feel supported and encouraged.

Check with your school’s counselor or student union to see what pregnancy or parenting groups exist on campus. You might be surprised to learn that there are more than you imagined.
