female inmates in most states are kept shackled during labor and delivery.

as if they've picked that time to escape, right?

and why is she not breastfeeding? how long does an inmate mother keep her infant for? deserves looking into

How long they get to keep their babies with them varies by state. The norm in many places is to lose them quickly to the system (or sometimes to other family if available and approved).

Some are trying to do better; especially for the women incarcerated for non-violent offenses.
