The Newborn Baby Buried Alive Managed To Survive

The newborn was rescued and managed to survive after being buried alive for 7 hours.

Police dug up the newborn in Xingu National Park in Mato Grosso. The area is home to numerous indigenous tribes, including the Kamayura, which the child’s mother belongs to.

The child’s family said that they thought the newborn was dead, because the baby had hit her head on the floor after being born. However, police are suspicious since the child’s father refuses to recognize the newborn as his child, and the child’s mother is very young.

Authorities believe that the family deliberately tried to kill the newborn. Police have the child’s mother and great-grandmother under detention.

Currently, the newborn is in the neonatal intensive care unit at the Boa Agua Hospital. Doctors found that she had hypothermia as well as respiratory problems. She is currently under the care of the state.

Why do some moms abandon their newborns?

It is quite alarming to hear an increase in the cases of children who are being abandoned by their own parents, usually their mothers.

One of the main reasons is that some pregnant moms find it hard to tell their families that they’re pregnant. Additionally, fathers also sometimes abandon the mothers, leaving them incapable of taking care of the child on their own.

Sometimes, the problem can also be cultural, as some cultures frown upon adoption and being pregnant out of wedlock.

Whatever the circumstance, it’s important for everyone to provide nonjudgmental support to all moms. Being a mom isn’t easy, and it’s much harder if you feel that you’re all alone in the world.
