Transferring to another course because of ill health

I started The CACHE Level 3 Diploma in Early Years Education and Care (Early Years Educator) a few months ago and have since had problems after finding out I was pregnant and now cannot continue working in a childcare profession as i have been instructed to rest and if I need to work to do job which is not so strenuous and on my feet all day. I wrote to the college and to the cancellations and transfers team explaining what my doctors and midwife had said and asking if there was some way I can transfer to a course which doesn't rely on the work experience side as I now cannot do it due to health reasons and problems I am having with this pregnancy, I have had a lot of bleeding and have been in hospital for a while because the doctors wanted to make sure I wasn't having a miscarriage. I thought as I had taken out a 24+ student loan for this course they may be some way to move to another course as I have the loan out now. Today I received a letter from Stonebridge colleges saying they are not willing to help me and that I am reminded that not matter what I will have to pay the loan back even if I cannot complete all of The CACHE Level 3 Diploma in Early Years Education and Care (Early Years Educator) as I can do the coursework no problem but without the classroom or childcare experience to go alongside it I feel I will fail. I'm so stressed and don't know what to do, I was working in a nursery and then with a childminder but it's become to the point I can't even do the weekly shopping my health is really bad at the moment. I'm 12 weeks pregnant so I'm hoping that health wise things will improve but I really am so worried now that I have no help whatsoever from the college, they are not interested in helping me in any way and I feel so lost
