    I read yesterday in the media that the police were working with the hospital to piece together who this child belonged to based on the age of the bub. I suspect it wasn't really a case of genuine remorse; if that was the case she would have gone to the police in the 5 days before he was found. I argue she knew she was going to be caught and turned herself in.

    If she had dumped her baby at a door step then I would be saying good on her for doing the right thing must have been a hard decision to make ....she must be going through a tough time ....but to dump him in a drain to leave him to die she gets no sympathy from me sorry she deserves the book thrown at her life in prison. ...people like this make me so mad so angry that poor little baby....so so lucky that he was found and I hold hope that he will be OK ..... (just MY opinion)

    Such a disturbing story . Poor poor little baby. What this "mother"has done is beyond me. Mental,sick whatever she is, I don't care, nothing can excuse her actions . Lots of people have mental problems but they don't go dropping their baby down a drain and leaving it there to die. Disgusting behavior. I really hope the baby survives and goes to a loving home to be raised.

    I feel for the mother. She must have some serious issues to be taking the life of another. But reality is, this is attempted murder and I do hope she is charged as such. If she is then given help within the system- good, but first and foremost- protect the innocent.

    Just proving a point that the use of the phrase "good of her" to describe the mothers actions can be seen as distasteful in this story.

    I'm not disputing that you found it distasteful and I'm sorry.
    I stand by it.

    Default *trigger warning* baby found down drain

    I agree with @delirium. I am really struggling to feel anything but utter disgust towards this case.

    Maybe she lived nearby and walked past it in a regular basis? Maybe she was walking past it for the first time and just snapped. Who knows there are a million and one possible explanations.

    That's the sort of thing we're never going to know I'd say. Who knows if she'd noticed it prior and always planned on doing it, or if she just happened to be walking past, saw it, and went hey, I'll just put him down there.
    Considering bub was fresh out of the hopsital still wrapped in their blanket and all, I've got this image in my head of her leaving the hospital on foot, and spotting the drain on her walk home.
    Mind you, if she felt that much hatred towards her baby, why did she even take him home? You'd think she'd have just walked out of the hospital and left him there.
    I'm sure there must be someone else involved in this. How did the woman leave the hospital? In a cab? On foot? Would they seriously discharge a woman on her own to catch a cab home? Did she drive her own car to the hospital? It's all just weird. There's definitely got to be more to it.
