It's not horrifying - you're choosing inflamatory language. It's not good, it's not normal, but at least she carried the baby to term, delivered it live & left it for someone to see immediately. There is clearly horrible stuff going on in this woman's life. Let's all be happy the baby is alive & OK and not being neglected in this woman's care.

Over stated……

But yes the mother is wrong leaving the child unattended on the fold out table 3ft off the floor. She could have left the child at any hospital or a dozen other drop off locations.
