The Incarcerated Pregnancy: An Ethnographic Study of Perinatal Women in English Prisons
NHS England is not responsible for content on external websites.
The study considers what makes the pregnant woman’s experience of prison unique from other experiences of incarceration or, indeed, of other pregnancy experiences. It has led to the formation of an important and original contribution to knowledge which spans several academic and health disciplines. The study has the potential to springboard future inquiry and to be a vehicle for positive reform for pregnant women across the prison estate.
