This document provides both students and staff with information about the support that the University of Sunderland (at either its Sunderland or London Campuses) can offer to a student (or where relevant, her partner) who

  • thinks may be pregnant
  • has recently given birth
  • has recently experienced stillbirth or miscarriage
  • has terminated a pregnancy

It also provides some information relating to supporting a student (whether female or male) who has recently become a parent (including through adoption) or is the partner of someone who has a very young child (defined as children who are under the age of six months, or who are breastfeeding). Where appropriate and/or relevant, references below to the mother may also be taken as referring to the partner.
