Mother Tries To Kill Her Newborn Baby - Gets Unbelievable Punishment

Orsolya-Anamaria Balogh, 27, attempted to murder her newborn son by neglectfully abandoning him in a hospital toilet bin. The baby boy was found at Royal Albert Edward Infirmary, Wigan, with a severed umbilical cord with several stuffed tissues in his mouth. Balogh claims to have been ignorant of her pregnancy, but her internet searches about pregnancy and home births place her claims into considerable question.

She was sentenced to 12 months community service by Liverpool Crown Court and Judge Neil Flewitt QC sentenced her to ten days of rehabilitation and three months at a Leeds bail hostel.

The judge has stated that two consulting psychiatrists agree that Balogh was "in denial about being pregnant, disassociating from the whole experience, including at the time of giving birth." He also noted Balogh’s "disturbance by reason of not having fully recovered from the effects of giving birth."

She apparently complained of abdominal discomfort and and told a triage nurse that it was impossible for her to be pregnant. This statement vividly contrasts with her prior online searches pertaining to pregnancy and home births. Balogh spent time in the toilet, leaving before the nurse had time to see her. It is unclear as to whether or not Balogh was truly distraught and mentally ill or if she simply wanted to murder her baby.

A hospital cleaner later observed the heaviness of a toilet bin. Squeaking sounds were heard and an open bin revealed the newborn baby in the fetal position. Prosecutor, Richard Pratt QC, reported that the infant survived the ordeal with remarkable fortitude and was unscathed by the traumatic occurrence due to medical intervention.

The baby has been placed in foster care and is currently the subject of family proceedings. The father of the child intends to take his son to Romania and Balogh has been granted supervised visits which is intended to continue. There has been no comment or intervention by any of the baby’s additional relatives.
