I'm past my due date and I will be getting induced on Friday if I don't have my baby before then. My question is for moms who have had babies mid semester. How did you work it out? How much time did you have to miss? How did you work it out with your instructors? How flexible were they about accepting your assignments?
I didn't know where to put this question since its about education and it isn't really a pregnancy question.

I had my son mid way though a graduate course. Luckily, we had a semester break and then I missed one class. Since class was once a week and James was my 2nd child, I was fine to go to my class once a week for 3 hours. It was like a break. I'd talk to your teacher and see if you can't get anything turned in before Friday. They should be pretty understanding, but don't expect to take 6 weeks off. I'd email and call them today. Check you syllabus about your attendance policy too. You can do it. Just don't get overwhelmed now. One more thing, see if you can turn in your assignments via email too. So if you miss 2 weeks, your work is still on time. Get notes and things from a classmate too.
