Women's prison opens nursery for mothers, babies behind bars

Article here. Excerpt:

'For the first year of her life, 2-year-old Amia Kamer lived behind a chain-link fence at the Ohio Reformatory for Women, where her mother was serving 17 months on theft of drugs charge.

The all-women prison is the only one in the state with a nursery, where mothers who are pregnant at the time of incarceration and serving less than three years on minor charges can raise their newborn children to promote family bonding. The prison recently unveiled its newly built, $2 million nursery at a ceremony.'
