At any one time, around one hundred female patients were in the care of Victorian Broadmoor. The majority of these patients were of childbearing age. It was inevitable, then, that occasionally women would be admitted who were pregnant.
The stories of five such women, three of whom had already killed their own children, are told in a chapter in 'Broadmoor Revealed'.
