Temporary contract and pregnancy

I am hoping that someone can give me some advice. I am currently on a 6 month contract with genuinely no idea if it will be renewed (up til September) I work in the third sector and funding, as always is the main issue/sticking point. At the end of the last financial year the organisagtion went through consultation and a couple of people were made redundant and I know that it is likely to happen again in the future (although not before September) What would my rights be if I announced to my bosses that I am pregant? Am i still constrained by the 6 month contract? would I have a job going forward? would I be eligable for redundancy? I have so many questions and I don't know what to do!

I didn't see the deleted post. I'm guessing it was not very nice to say the least.
Genuinely thank you for responding anyway.

If your employer would have otherwise renewed your contract they can't decide not to on the basis of your pregnancy or maternity leave - that should not be a factor.

So whether you have a job once your contract is up should depend on whatever funding/other factors there are.

If you've only been employed less than 6 months then no, you won't be eligible for redundancy pay if your contract is not renewed.

I was in this position and choose not to inform them of my pregnancy till I knew (although not the only reason I didn't tell them). You don't say how far along you are or whether you are worried if it will have an impact?
