They may not be 16 and pregnant — but these women are criminals raising their babies behind bars. Will you watch?

As soon as you think TLC couldn’t come up with another reality show to top their past hits — including Toddlers & TiarasSister Wives and Kate Plus 8 — they premiere the new two-episode special Babies Behind Bars, all about motherhood in prison. Sounds intriguing, right? This one might be better than I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant. Watch a preview after the jump! 

The show premieres tonight and showcases inmates vying for one of the 10 spots available in the “baby dorm” the coveted perch that allows selected offenders to raise their children while serving their sentence. The specials share eye-opening personal struggles and dramatic stories while giving us an insight into what it’s like for new mothers and moms-to-be behind bars.

So will you tune in? Watch a preview below!

I’d like to share that I’m from Texas and was pregnant when I went to prison. Trust me it’s not easy when your worrying about your unborn child. Weekends we only got to eat twice a day and I cried when the guards closed the door on me and another girl in front of me. Luckily there are some loving women in there who are willing to help. I had to complete a year in prison and I was 8 weeks pregnant when I found out. Later when I got closer to my due date a woman called me to an office and asked me a few questions about what I wanted to do with my life. I explained to her that I wanted to work on myself so I could take care of my family. Then she sent me back to my cubical. When I went into labor they sent me to a hospital in Galveston and I delivered my son. The next day I went to a rehabilitation center to live with my son the duration of my incarceration. I am now out and living on my own with my son cherishing every moment. I thank BAMBI in Houston and the wonderful loving staff for the second chance. People should understand that a program like that isn’t a right, it’s a privilege!!
