You will be considered an emancipated minor during your hospital stay and will have full right to make any decisions regarding you and your child's treatment and hospital stay without any control from your parents or gaurdian. You will also have full control of your child's future medical treatment, however you will not be an emancipated minor without going to court to obtain this status.

Can a 15 year old get emancipated just because she is pregnant?

No. A 15 year old is still a minor, but now one with a child. Becoming pregnant does not make a minor emancipated. To become emancipated a minor child needs to go before a judge to have him/her determine if she can support herself and the baby. The judge will want to know the means of support and other living conditions. Being emancipated means that a person can support themselves, have a job, pay the rent, pay for babysitting, and do all things needed to live. I doubt that a judge will allow a 15 year old minor to become emancipated with a baby without the needed support.
