Being pregnant also means having special rights and protection in many areas of your life. As far as your profession is concerned, you are now particularly protected by the Maternity Protection Act. You are also entitled to comprehensive medical benefits. If you find yourself in a difficult situation, you are entitled to special support. If you are not married, separated or living alone, you often have to make decisions concerning family law for yourself and your child.
However, many women also feel an increased need to do only the best for themselves and their unborn child. You can inform yourself about these topics so that you can decide for yourself what you need as per your life circumstances, where you get further information from and possibly advice and support and which offers you do not want to consider.
If you want to know more or have questions, please contact a doctor or a pro familia counselling centre.
Doctors, social workers, psychologists and pedagogues shall be at your disposal as contact persons.
