Being pregnant in jail

The scary reality of being pregnant in prison Prison inmate Julie Bilotta made headlines when she nearly died giving birth in jail.
Julie Bilotta, the Cornwall-born inmate who gave birth to her first son, Gionni, on the floor of a jail cell at the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre September 29 because guards and nurses didn’t believe she was in labour, is still awaiting the outcome of three separate investigations into her shocking birth story.
Bilotta, who was eight months pregnant and in remand custody awaiting trial on fraud- and drug-related charges, underwent a blood transfusion as a result of excessive blood loss during the high-risk, breech birth.


Warner, who has Type 1 diabetes, had to be treated at a local hospital during the duration of her high-risk pregnancy.
Warner was moved to a special pregnancy unit of her prison, where about 20 other women were incarcerated.
The combination of being separated from their babies, the severe isolation, and the poor physical care during the pregnancy and postpartum periods place new mothers at an increased risk for mental disorders following birth, including postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis.


Baxter described one 2010 case of a pregnant woman at the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre who thought she was having a miscarriage because of profuse bleeding.
