New two-part series Pregnant Behind Bars follows some of the 75 women who give birth every year while being detained at Chicago’s Cook County Jail.
Having a baby is one of the biggest moments in anyone’s life, but what if this important milestone took place while you were behind bars?
Their situations vary wildly, some are hardened gang members, some are battling deadly drug addictions, but they all have one thing in common: they want the best life possible for their unborn children.
Follow the mothers-to-be as they work with a team of selfless doctors and obstetricians who are there to help them along every step of their 40 weeks, up until the big moment when they give birth.
Watch Pregnant Behind Bars on Thursday 3 October at 8pm WAT on Discovery TLC.
