    Thank you for contacting the National Runaway Switchboard. We’re sorry to hear you’re in a difficult situation with the legality of what you can do during your pregnancy without your mom’s permission. There are different ways this can be dealt with but every city/county/state are different about the law in these situations. Generally being listed as a runaway is merely a way for police throughout the country to know that you have run away and from there they would likely just take you home. Going to the doctor’s office is a different situation. Because you are a minor they may not be able to see you without your parent/legal guardian present, but that’s something you can call ahead of time and ask them.

    We could help you best if you gave us a call at our confidential 24 hour hotline 1800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or you can live chat with us any day from 4:30-11:30pm central time. If you give us a call with more information we could give you support and provide the appropriate resources to answer your questions. We hope this helped.

    Best of luck,
    NRS Supervisor
