Newborn baby removed from mom in prison: Now reunited| December 2, 2009
Patricia Block tells her story of giving birth while serving time at BC's Fraser Valley Institution. Patricia had requested to serve a federal sentence so that she'd be able to keep her baby with her because the prison has a unit specifically built for mothers and babies. But because of a lack of communication between government agencies, Patricia's baby was put into foster care two days after being born. Now on the outside and re-united with her daughter, Patricia looks back to reflect on what happened... and talks about what she's doing to make sure this doesn't happen to other women in the future.
