CI罪案通緝頻道 監獄寶寶 搶先看片段1

隨著前所未有的高女囚數量,每年在全美監獄中出生的嬰兒數量高達一萬人。多數情況下,嬰兒一出生即和母親分開。然而在少數幾個州中,有基本措施讓母親得以留住孩子。印地安納州女子監獄就執行這樣的計畫,稱為“小傢伙”,除了嬰兒在成長階段亟需母親陪伴以外,母親也常因此而金盆洗手,根據全國統計,九成以上的母親沒有再犯。《監獄寶寶》節目將跟隨幾位參與這18個月計畫的女囚們,看她們錯綜交織的故事;有的是產前剛要加入計畫、有的是已過計劃的一半、也有的是已來到計畫後期。她們都掙扎著遵守規定,為了不被計畫除名,也為了自己和孩子更好的未來而奮鬥。節目也同時看看這些本性不壞卻一時犯錯的母親們所信任的獄中保姆和勒戒人員的工作。

With more women serving time than ever before, a staggering 10,000 babies are born behind bars each year in the US. In most cases, babies are separated from their mothers immediately after birth. However, in a handful of states, radical programs allow women to keep their babies. Indiana Women's Prison runs one of those programs, Wee Ones, and in addition to the important impact of the infants benefiting from being with their mothers, the mothers are often turned around permanently. Nationwide, over 90% of the participating women have not reoffended. Across the 5 serialized hours of this initial order of Babies Behind Bars (wt) , we will follow the interweaving stories of 4 to 5 inmates, each of whom is at a different stage of the 18 month program. Some will be entering the program just before giving birth, some will be about halfway through the program, some will be coming to the end of the program. All will be struggling to play by the rules and remain in this program while fighting for a better life for themselves and their babies. We'll also follow the inmate nannies and the tough-love professionals in whose hands the futures of these flawed yet well-meaning women are entrusted.
