A SICK mum who stuffed her new born baby girl in a plastic bag and HURLED her out of a window has been caged for ten years.
Somehow the tot miraculously survived the impact but was left with serious injuries, including bleeding on the brain.
The woman, who cannot be named to protect the child’s identity, had only just given birth after keeping her pregnancy a secret.
The mum, of Oswestry, Shrops, admitted attempted murder at a previous hearing and was jailed at Stafford Crown Court yesterday.
Judge Michael Chambers QC said: “This isn’t a spontaneous reaction of finding out she was pregnant.
“There was clearly a case of some premeditation.
“It was a grave and appalling act.”
The court heard the woman gave birth at a house on April 22 last year.
Prosecutor David Mason QC said: “She went upstairs into the bathroom and gave birth to a baby girl secretly.
“She was full term and there were no complications.
“She gave birth in the toilet bowl and put the baby in a plastic bag before throwing her out the window.
“Below the window were concrete slabs.”
The court heard she didn’t want the child because it reminded her of the baby’s father who she had broken up from.
The badly injured tot was found outside a house in Meole Brace, Shrewsbury, where the mother had been living.
Paul Smith, defending, said the woman was “naive and socially immature” but was deeply remorseful.
