I wonder if this could possibly have been post natal psychosis triggered by the birth. I¿ve read about some awful cases of this. Either way this is a desperately sad situation. I¿m very sorry this woman experienced such a sad and frightening ending. I hope the little one gets well and lives a full life.

He's so so cute. Bless this little one. May it be the worst thing that happens to him in a long healthy life.

I wonder if the mother really did hang herself? Seems rather odd to choose the moment that you give birth? So glad that at least the baby is alright.

I wonder what that poor woman had to endure before she resorted to such a desperate act. R.I.P. Mummy....

So tragic. Poor mother will never see her baby grow and the baby lost its mummy before she got to know her. Absolutely heartbreaking story
