According to Housing Matters (an Urban Institute), “Women who entered shelter during or shortly after pregnancy had higher rates of alcohol, opioid, and nonopioid drug use disorders; adjustment, anxiety, and depressive disorders; injuries due to external causes; and complications during pregnancy and birth compared with pregnant women who did not use shelter.”
“It’s unfortunate that homelessness exists. However, I could never imagine pregnant women that are unable to live with a roof over their head and provide a future for kin” states upcoming rap artist KARAMELRICANNXX.
In the same manner, many forget about such a tender demographic that often gets neglected due to conflicting viewpoints at times.
“As an artist, I feel as if it’s part of my duty to be a voice for those that cannot. Especially when it comes to niche topics such as these”, explains KARAMELRICANNXX.
