restraints on pregnant inmates
I commend you for thinking of the health & safety of pregnant inmates, and their babies. Having a woman in restraints during labor & delivery can endanger the mother and/or the baby. Please change this policy, so that the mothers and babies will have every oppotunity for a safe delivery. Thank you.
Mrs. Cheryl Hair
