Anyone you know ever go through this? What happens when you are pregnant in prison? Do they take the baby away right away? Where does the baby go?


Just curious

I don't know. I'm sure there's a lifetime documentary on it though.

I've only seen stuff on TV about that, no real life experience with anyone who's been to prison.

I don't know but hopefully they take the baby right away so that it can begin to bond with whoever will care for it. That's what's best for the baby. But this country is more interested in criminals rights than a childs needs so who knows what actually happens.

From what I've seen on TV, the baby goes to a family member or goes to cps custody. They go right away.

It depends on the facility.

I was curious myself, so I googled and found this:

Pregnant Behind Bars TV Show

It aired on TLC and you can watch clips and episodes on the link.

I thought that they got to hang out in the hospital for a few day or a week or something with the mom

I also saw a documentary on a prison where non violent pregnant women got a chance to raise their baby behind bars. I forgot what prison did this.
