Maternal Healthcare In The Prison System: What Happens Next?

Ann Arbor MI 11-14-2019 11-14-2019

The University of Michigan Prison Birth Project is a student organization that advocates for women in prison and works to ensure that incarcerated women are offered education, doula support, and respect during their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experiences. This panel will bring together experts, advocates, and prison doulas to talk about their experiences across the spectrum of reproductive justice, mass incarceration, and prisoner’s rights. We hope that you will come away from this event with a better understanding of the current state of healthcare and reproductive health in Women’s Huron Valley Correctional Facility and prisons around the nation, and what you can do to advocate for change.
