Concerning nursing mothers and pregnant women in nysc orientation camp, you would not be allowed to stay fully in camp for the 3 weeks. After your registration you will be decamped because they feel that the camp is not conducive enough for your condition and state of health. The policy is done to forestall avoidable emergency that may occur to the expectant mothers during the 3 weeks orientation Program, which entails some rigorous physical exercises.
Also the camp clinics are not equipped enough for pre and post-natal services and maternity emergencies and treatments. And the strenuous exercises in the Camp which may jeopardize the health of the mother and the unborn child.
The clinics on camp are emergency clinics some hide to stay because they want to enjoy freedom from home maybe or just do not want to miss out on the fun. As I say it is once in a lifetime experience o.
Well for some pregnant corper that are not that heavy and who insist they must be on camp and doge officials who would want them to leave, they can be given exemption letters form the camp clinic to be excluded from rigorous activities and some stressful exercises.
Serving with pregnancy is definitely not an easy adventure because you cannot compare yourself to a fellow corper, who is not pregnant.
For those who want to stay, pregnant women are given priorities in some things like the almighty queuing up. The environment of the camp though conducive is not suitable for nursing mothers while pregnant corps members cannot go through the various exercises and other rigorous programs.
So my candid and sincere advice is that pregnant and nursing mothers in the NYSC orientation camp should just abide by the decamping rules. Have a lovely time . If you have further questions don’t forget to ask .
