Default Ohio Builds A New Home For Women And Children Behind Bars

Ohio Builds A New Home For Women And Children Behind Bars

Alisha Floyd bounces her son Chance on her lap. He giggles and pulls her hair. “He’s the fattest baby here,” she says, laughing...

...Floyd is part of the Ohio Reformatory for Women’s Achieving Baby Care Success program, or ABC. It lets women who are pregnant when they’re incarcerated keep their babies in prison – giving them the opportunity to do things like breastfeed and bond with their newborn, which studies show improve children’s long-term health and well-being.

Soon, the moms and babies in the ABC program will get a new home - a specially-designed prison nursery that will cost the state more than $2 million.


Way to go Ohio! All women's prisons should have a special area for mom's and babies. It would be a logistical nightmare, but for father's who are interested and intend to be a father to their newborn after release, they should also have the opportunity to take care of and bond with their baby as well. Babies need to bond with both parents, and its good for the parents, too
