Pregnant & Homeless - Anew Support Services
This week Sinead is joined by a woman who was pregnant & homeless.
She would like to remain anonymous but is hopeful that people can hear and understand her story.
As the housing crisis in Ireland escalates she found herself unable to keep up with rising rental costs.
In early pregnancy she had no choice but to arrive at a homeless hostel seeking support.
What she found was an environment completely unsuitable for any pregnant woman seeking shelter, care and compassion.
Thankfully she was directed to the work of the charity group Anew who support pregnant women at risk of homelessness.
From a warm bed to a hospital bag, anew support services are doing all they can.
