Pregnancy Resources at GU

If you or a friend is pregnant and not sure where to go for help, please know that there is a whole community ready to support you and the child!

Here is a list of the pregnancy resources offered at Georgetown University.

  1. Pregnancy Testing Kits that women can use inside or outside of the Health Education Services office (Poulton 101). No matter how one decides to view the results of the test, all the resources offered through Health Education Services are dispensed on a confidential basis.
  2. A Student Health Insurance Plan that covers the costs of medical care for the student and his/her child for as long as the student decides to take classes and live on campus.
  3. Counseling Services provided by trained and certified therapists and social workers that do not impose a particular life choice for the student but act as a support system and point of guidance for her as she finds answers for herself.
  4. Housing for student moms provided by the university. This on-campus living includes housing for the summer semester, if needed.
  5. Child Care (Day Care) through the Hoya Learning Center for children of 18 months and older.
  6. Babysitting Services provided by the members of RTL for free.
  7. Baby Care Supplies such as diapers, wipes, and formula can be supported by RTL for free, as needed.
  8. Lactation Rooms on campus for breastfeeding and pumping.
  9. Academic adjustments and accommodations through the Title IX office.

Please consult the Georgetown Student Health Services page for Pregnancy for any questions. If you need any additional resources or support and are not sure where to turn, Chaplains in Residence in all residence halls, Counseling & Psychiatric Services at Georgetown, and GU Right to Life are all here to help.
