A Verulam woman who dumped her child in a bin will make her appearance in the Verulam Magistrates’ court.
The 31-year-old woman expected that the waste services would carry away the child.
She also said she decided to leave the child when her boyfriend had refused to support her while she had been pregnant.
“My partner informed me that he was not interested in continuing with our relationship. He elected not to support me in my pregnancy and he severed our relationship.”
She gave birth to her third child on January 14 without any medical intervention, placed the child in a refuse bag, and left the bag on the side of the road.
The child was given to the father.
