That's what I was thinking. Thanks!

Hi, everyone In the interest of keeping the information on the board for future access/searches, I will ask that any new comments be directly relating to the OP's question about welfare office experiences.

If I tell them (or they realize) that I'm pregnant....and find out that I'm UCing?
I have removed several posts that had veered into non-UC-related areas, quoted or referenced a removed post, etc. Please PM me you have any questions or concerns. Thanks

If anyone sees a post that is questionable or against the MDC User Agreement, please report the post to a moderator rather than posting to the thread Thanks!

We were on food stamps when I was pregnant with Willie in 1980. The technician never asked me about my plans for the birth. I didn't get prenatal care, so when it was time to get the birth certificate I didn't have the "proof of pregnancy" that they required (they didn't require this when I had John two years earlier, and I didn't realize the laws had changed). The birth cert. office said I needed someone "in a position of authority" to verify that I had indeed been pregnant. So my food stamp technician signed the form and I got his birth cert.! She didn't express any concern about my UC and was always very nice to me.
