A 2-part series for the US Discovery Learning Channel TLC & UK Independent Television company ITV1
These two films tell the story of a group of pregnant women incarcerated in Indiana Women’s Prison which has a pioneering and controversial baby wing. After giving birth chained to the bed, a select number of prisoners are allowed to return to their cells with their newborn babies.
Transmitted as 2 x 60 mins & 2 x 45 mins (4 minute clip above).
Radio Times: ‘This absorbing and jaw-dropping film uses the intensely emotional stories of seven pregnant inmates to question the way the American justice system treats women who give birth while doing time.’
