First Nursery Open At The Ohio Reformatory For Women In Marysville.

The first and only nursery inside an Ohio prison is now open at the Ohio Reformatory for Women in Marysville. Officials opened the facility on Thursday which features a fully-equipped dormitory for incarcerated mothers and their infants. The nursery was created so healthy mothers convicted of non-violent crimes could bond with their newborns while serving their sentences. To use the program, prisoners must participate in a treatment plan and a long-term social-services course to help transition back to civilian life.
