This is Danielle's story of being shackled during her labor and delivery while a prisoner in Maryland.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE PRACTICE?

 Shackling pregnant women is dangerous and inhumane.

 Major national correctional and medical associations oppose shackling pregnant women because it is unnecessary and harmful to a woman and her pregnancy.

 The vast majority of female prisoners are non-violent offenders who pose a low security risk - particularly during labor and post-partum recovery.
