What's it really like to give birth while you're in jail?

We found out from Lindy Chamberlain on Anh Do's Brush with Fame last week, the trauma she went through having to hand over her baby just one hour after she was born. She was just beginning her life sentence for the death of her daughter Azaria.

In today's episode we explore the life of Mums in jail, what it's like to give birth while in custody, the struggle to maintain relationships with kids on the outside and the programs that now allow woman to not only give birth in jail but raise their kids on the inside.
