Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation requires that all local jails provide doula services (perinatal emotional and physical support during labor and delivery and intermittently during the prenatal period or postpartum) to all inmates during the period of 22nd week of gestation and ending one week after childbirth.  These comprehensive services would be required at the expense of the local taxpayers.
