Pregnancy and birth should be a time of transformation, not trauma. We believe that every child born to an incarcerated woman deserves an opportunity to be bonded from birth. Every woman should have access to quality care and compassionate childbirth support. Women leaving prison should be prepared to parent with confidence.
Motherhood Beyond Bars provides education and compassionate support for incarcerated pregnant women and new mothers. Working in two prisons in Georgia, we provide prenatal education specifically designed for incarcerated women and parenting support with the goal of maintaining healthy and bonded relationships between parents and their children.
