How Many Prison Nurseries Are There In The United States? (Solved)

The nursery programme at the Indiana Women’s Prison is the subject of a recent reality series on A&E called “Born Behind Bars,” which provides a glimpse into life inside a prison nursery 🙌 During one episode, a young mother looks at her infant son and says, “You’re incarcerated with me and didn’t do anything 😉” Then she looks up at another mother also raising her baby in the nursery at Indiana’s maximum-security prison and says, “It makes you feel guilty 😁 Both prison and pregnancies are bad things. They are not both evil, but they do make a terrible combination. The best thing about being pregnant is to feel happy, and the worst is to die. Although her explanation is heartbreaking, it is also an honest assessment of the reality of raising a child while in prison. This is something that many supporters of prison nurseries are unwilling to admit.

Pregnancy and prison are the two worst things in life together.” Not that they’re both bad, she explains; just a bad combination. “Pregnancy is supposed to be happy and prison is like the closest thing to dying.” Heartbreaking though her analysis is, hers is also a much more realistic understanding of what it means to raise a child in prison than many advocates of prison nurseries seem willing to acknowledge.

The analysts have reported that cwla.orgPrison nursery programs permit a mother to care for her child during a limited time period, which can range from 30 days up to 30 years, depending on where she is located. A general rule is that a woman in prison can take part in a nursery programme provided her past record of child abuse and neglect does not include a conviction for nonviolent crimes. Some nurseries are located in the prison compound as either a unit or wing of the prison. Others are found off-site in community corrections settings. Which nurseries? The jury is yet to decide. Model works best. “Quality matters, and there are so many variables about why one programme on the inside or outside is better than another that it’s hard to come up with a blanket statement,” says Yali Lincroft, a consultant to the Annie E. Casey Foundation. Lincroft, along with many others experts, agree that more research is needed to compare the significant benefits of the community-based and on-site nurseries.

According to analysts cga.ct.govWe’re finding 8 states with a women’s prison and a nursery programme that serves mothers incarcerated in jail. This programme allows mothers to keep their infants with them inside Correctional facilities. These programs were most commonly created within the past 15 years. Programs are designed for mothers who are pregnant when they are first incarcerated. The programme allows the mother and child to establish a relationship during the infant stage. The programme’s goal is to allow the mother and the child to both leave prison at the completion of their sentence. Participating mothers in this programme must (1) be mentally and physically able to take care of their child, and (2) not have any history of child abuse or violence. The state’s staffing requirements for nursery programs vary. Inmates may also be screened for participation in the day care or nanny programme.
