Mothers of Bedford

Mothering can be difficult at the best of times but

Mothers of Bedford follows five women incarcerated at
New York’s only maximum security prison, Bedford Hills

relationships with their children, nurture them & play central

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.
