Putting in prison time can’t be a walk in the park, so imagine what it must be like for a pregnant woman. A new show, “Pregnant Behind Bars” captures the struggle of inmates as they try to survive one of the largest detention facilities in the country, Cook County Jail, right outside of Chicago.
It premieres Thursday, Aug. 22 at 10 p.m. ET on Discovery Fit and Health.
The two-part series shows how these detainees are treated when they’re booked in Division 17, a separate wing in the prison, which also houses those dealing with addiction and health issues.
