Kids born to incarcerated mothers do well if allowed to bond

Amy Salmon, a researcher with UBC’s Centre for Health Evaluation Outcome Sciences spoke with the Times Colonist for a story on babies born to mothers in prison.

“I saw babies being cared for beautifully by their moms and whose presence was really valued and cherished, not just by their moms, but by many of the other women in the prison as well,” said Salmon, who examined mother-child relationships in the Alouette Correctional Centre for Women.
