What Was This Australian Mom Thinking?
One natural response is to stare at this article in disbelief. Postpartum depression is a disease. It can make a mother do things that she might not otherwise do; however, what possibly could this 30 year-old Australian mom have been thinking when she allegedly abandoned her baby in a place that it was unlikely to be found? This mother, Saifale Nai, is accused of trying to kill her newborn son who was found abandoned in a roadside drain by bicyclists. The newborn may have been in the eight foot deep drain for a few days before he was discovered and taken to Westmead Children's Hospital. The young lad is now in serious but stable condition where he is surrounded by nurses and doctors providing much needed affection as well as medical attention.
