Hello, my husband and I have been wanting to join the PC for quite awhile, we're in the Air Force currently and have been tied to that. The only issue we have right now is that we want to start having children. Does anyone know how the PC deals with children or getting pregnant while volunteering?

It may not be this explicit in the PC regs but, basically, you can't serve as a PCV unless you can demonstrate that having dependent children will have absolutely no impact on your ability to serve as a PCV. This is true for men as well and it doesn't matter if they're little kids living with you or the love child you had 10 years ago who lives with her mother. For the same reason, if you find yourself pregnant while a PCV (married or not), you will be seperated from service.
