Just tell her (to check her voicemail/missed calls) and everything should be fine. That or something happened to it, in which case you could still clear it up with a doctor's note or medical form to prove where you were.

she would still need a note from the doctor. they need a written note (or in some cases, they have specific paperwork for that.) idk if the fmla is the same but i know a lot of jobs have their own variations of it that needs to be filled out. it goes into that employee's records. they can't just make a copy of the baby and stick it in a cabinet file.

And to be honest, I find it insensitive of your boss to fire you for missing a day while you're pregnant. If an expecting mom is absent, one can easily infer it probably has something to do with the pregnancy!!

I'm a nurse, and one of my colleagues worked her shift, punched out and went upstairs and gave birth a few hours later. We all thought she was nuts. She was having contractions the entire shift.

Damn, 14, your co-worker is hard core. And, if she couldn't make through her shift or baby decided to come before it was over, at least she was already at the hospital. lol

Holy Cow! I don't know where you are from but in Austria Soon-to-be Mothers are absolutely forbidden to work like 2 month prior to their due date. Companies who still let them work have to deal with grave consequences! That's why nobody does it. It sounds crazy to me having to work till the day you give birth. But then again: Ohter Countries, other cutoms.
