    Default Studying whilst pregnant

    I studied while pregnant, my semester was due to finish early June and I ended up having DD in May. I deferred my exams and sat them in the scheduled deferred period in August. I was meant to still be pregnant during the usual exam period late June and the uni had even said they would let me sit my exams in a different room with a comfy chair and an extra 10 minutes to account for the toilet breaks and walking around and stretching. If you speak to the right person you'd be amazed at home accommodating they can be.

    Good luck!

    Default Studying whilst pregnant

    Has anyone in this thread done a placement whilst pregnant? Ill be eleven to sixteen weeks when I go on placement, and will be telling the supervisor before I go as I don't think I'll be able to hide the bump. I'm a bit scared this will make me be seen in a negative way, but it will not in any way impact my performance.

    I don't see how being second tri pregnant during placement should be too bad. Be open about it and perform at your best as you would

    I think it will depend a bit on what sort of placement you are talking about.
    For example would you be able to work with children with disabilities who may need lifting or other manual handling? Or in aged care where people may get confused and lash out aggressively? In a hospital where you might be exposed to contagions? In a daycare where there might be non-vaccinated children?

    When I supervise students there are certain competencies they have to meet to pass the placement so if they can't meet the requirements I recommend they defer.

    Would totally depend on your field of study of course!

    This- I deferred my disability course so I could perform my best and not let them down either. Also my brain wasnt functioning from first trimester. Everyone is different though. I had 40 hour a week placement and assignments from other subjects. No way could I kept up with morning sickness, indigestion and then helping out at a facility! Physically not possible. I admire everyone who can push through it.

    Yeah it is way better to defer than to have a fail or even a 'conceded pass' on your academic transcript

    No one has ever asked to see my academic transcript - just proof of my degree (the certificate)... A pass is still a pass and unless you are a graduate - competing on GPA and subject outcomes I don't think it matters too much - you have met the degree requirements. I would be pleased if someone asked for my GPA as it was excellent but not once has it been requested!

    It's an Ovcupational Therapy placement at thelocal primary school. I wont be required to do any lifting and I don't see it affecting me in any way really.
