Lesson Overview

In this lesson, we offer preparatory considerations for welcoming and accommodating a pregnant student in a drop-in class.


Understand how to accommodate a pregnant student in a drop-in class.


While pregnant students can be welcomed and accommodated in general drop-in classes, understand why they also should be aware of prenatal classes. Describe three areas of consideration for providing safety suggestions and accommodations for a pregnant student. Explain under what circumstances it might be appropriate to recommend a student not attend your class. Give an example of language that might be alienating to a pregnant student, and an alternative way of communicating the teaching.

This is part of a multi-page section designed to support teachers of drop-in classes who encounter pregnant students. See menu above for related topics. Please don’t miss the Cautions & Safety Suggestions.
