For Pregnant and Parenting Students

In keeping with its mission as a Catholic university, Notre Dame is committed to life and to offering students resources that support a student's choice of life—both during the pregnancy and after the child’s birth.  The University will make every effort to provide pregnant and parenting students with caring, non-judgmental, and professional assistance and support.  Assistance is also available for those affected by the pregnancy of someone close to them.
