Guide for use:Help on this term

A pregnancy is the carrying of a developing embryo or foetus which has been confirmed by medical test with or without the assistance of a medical professional. Pregnancy includes both those which were carried full term and those which were aborted or miscarried.

Note that the birth does not have to have occurred in the prison grounds, but also includes hospitals. However, the birth must occur while the mother was a prisoner.
