Mothers In Prison

by adustyframe ~ June 21st, 2015

I’ve read a few articles about mother’s giving birth behind bars and what happens.

Thinking about giving birth while incarcerated and possibly losing time with your brand new baby, breaks my heart. I’m so thankful our incarceration didn’t involve me!

Here’s an article that’s much more in depth than many I’ve read and perhaps you’ll find it interesting as well.

It’s easy–even for me–to read this and think, “well you shouldn’t have done this and maybe if you had done that.” Think about that baby though! It’s not their fault their mother messed up and those early days are so important. I’m glad that some states are looking into options for these families.

What did you think after you read it?
