Mothers of Bedford
Mothering can be difficult at the best of times but imagine trying to raise your children from prison. Mothers of Bedford follows five women incarcerated at New York’s only maximum security prison, Bedford Hills Correctional Facility. While trying to maintain strong relationships with their children, nurture them & play central roles in their lives, these women are also facing the isolation of life behind bars. The women are supported by an innovative children’s center that creates a space for positive change in the least likely of settings: prison. Mothers of Bedford is a deeply moving story about these women, their journey and what it means to be a mother.
