So has any one else seen the previews for I'm Pregnant and....Its about a lady who is pregnant and homeless. I really want to watch it just to see but since it does not premiere till Tuesday I did a google search just because and I came across this post about being pregnant and homeless and one of the replies to the post was from discovery health:

ChosenFast.com Homeless, pregnant and panhandling

Hello Michele,

My name is Rebecca Lock. Im a television producer in Washington, DC. I am working on a documentary series for Discovery Health. Well be telling the stories of women who are pregnant and whose pregnancies are exacerbated by a difficult circumstance. Wed love to film someone who is pregnant and homeless. Each woman featured will receive $1,500 for her participation, which Im hoping will help her get back on her feet. Im wondering if you can put me in touch with your friend. Hopefully, we can help her and tell her story. I can be reached at 310-562-0686 or rlock@sirensmedia.com. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks!

Best,

Rebecca

Ok so I kind of have mixed feeling about this because part of me is like this story sounds interesting and then part of me feels like Discovery Health could do more than pay them $1500, and actually help them get set up with some sort of housing. I was also reading other replies where women were saying they're homeless and pregnant and I guess this sounds really bad but I wonder how are they getting on the internet, I guess they could be going to the library??

But that's just my opinion I was just wondering what everyone else thought of it???

They have already shown a couple of these. I have seen the one that is pregnant and in prison and pregnant and addicted to methadone.

The show is very interesting. It def. opened my eyes to what goes on with so many other people.

I guess I feel like $1500 is better than nothing?? I don't know if that sounds heartless, but I don't mean it that way if it does.
