ACOG Committee Opinion No. 511: Health care for pregnant and postpartum incarcerated women and adolescent females.

  • Published 2011 in Obstetrics and gynecology

Abstract

Clinicians who provide care for incarcerated women should be aware of the special health care needs of pregnant incarcerated women and the specific issues related to the use of restraints during pregnancy and the postpartum period. The use of restraints on pregnant incarcerated women and adolescents may not only compromise health care but is demeaning and rarely necessary.
