  • Babies Growing Up in Prison

    • News Shooter / Video Journalist

    For Mother's Day (peg), I'd like to do a story on female inmates allowed to raise their babies behind bars. The nurseries are decorated like any home nursery but these are in a maximum security prison! Does this program help decrease recidivism? Mother/child bonding during infancy seem paramount so it's interesting to see how this program helps both parent and child.
