Adult Services : Mothers and Infants Nurtured Together
This is a program for pregnant offenders who have been approved for community placement. Clients receive prenatal care at a cooperating hospital, give birth and bond with their babies for three months following birth. Groups cover prepared childbirth, parenting classes, life skills, nutritional education and healthy relationships. At the close of the program, some clients transition to the community whereas others return to a secure setting after making arrangements for the care of the baby.
