Prenatal Care Behind Bars

"Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in upstate New York houses the oldest prison nursery in the country. Pregnant inmates are given prenatal care and parenting classes. Some women are permitted to keep their babies with them in prison for up to 18 months, in an effort to create bonds between mother and child. Linda Wertheimer talks with some inmates, including one 18-year-old mother incarcerated for transporting drugs internationally." By Linda Wertheimer, National Public Radio, Weekend Edition, November 5, 2005 Link to Listen (last visted 11-06-05 NVS)
