BABIES BEHIND BARS tells the dramatic story of pregnant inmates contending for a spot in the coveted "baby dorm," a radical new project that allows selected offenders at Indiana Women's Prison, to keep their babies with them while they serve their sentence.


HEAVILY EVER AFTER follows the everyday struggles of Freddie and Kay, an oversized couple making their way in a regular size world. After nearly dying from complications of his obesity, Freddie and his wife Kay got serious about regaining their health. While they battle their weight, they never stop having fun and enjoying the simple pleasures of life. Freddie keeps the house filled with laughter and song, while the practical and tireless Kay keeps them on track as his caretaker and biggest fan.


TINIEST TWEEN: KENADIE'S STORY focuses on the next amazing chapter in 7-year old Kenadie's extraordinary life as a primordial dwarf. Although her entire life has been fraught with enormous challenges, this stage is her most heart-wrenching yet. At just 7 years old, 33 inches tall and weighing 17 pounds, Kenadie is confronted with the possibility of the early onset of puberty, and must face her fear of scary Halloween costumes when her school prepares for the holiday.


From the exotic to the downright bizarre TAXIDERMY USA offers a captivating peek inside the world of taxidermy in America. The special profiles three unique families as they stuff and mount everything from an African Lion, to an American Alligator to a Canadian Black Bear and even a Domestic House Cat. The special follows every step of the journey, capturing the painstaking hard work and the client's personal stories that go along with this mysterious and artistic craft.


From sewage spills, to rodent infestations, crime scenes, and crack houses, the Douglas family are the ULTIMATE CLEANERS, taking on the cases that no one else can � or will. This dirty family business takes former-cop Larry, his brother Matt, Matt's son Josh, Aunt Becky, and friend Patrick on a germ-infested journey that requires breathing masks and hazmats suits. The team tackles the most hazardous homes on the brink of bulldozing, and magically brings them back to life. Dramatic and heartwarming, the Douglas' never give up on a family's home no matter what kind of mess they're walking into.

There is a program that we have in Pasco County, Florida called BIRTH BEHIND BARS. We teach the pregnant inmates CB classes and we are a doula for them when they are taken to the hospital to have their baby.
We stay for her entire labor and many hours postpartum. If we were not there, she would be alone with only the Deputy in her room.
We are working to see this type of program to be in jails around the country.
