Mum's the Word is an easy-to-read, practical book for mothers in prison. It is based on a series of workshops facilitated by Pact with mothers in HMP Eastwood Park and HMP Bronzefield. Bringing hope and encouragement, it is a realistic and honest attempt to deal with the difficult issues facing mothers in prison, their children and those who are caring for children on the outside. 

When a mum is sent to prison she is often more worried about her children than about herself. This guide is full of advice and information to help you stay strong.
