Teen mother lay dead beside baby for two days

Teen mother lay dead beside baby for two days Police had to break down the 19-year-old's door after her family raised concerns.

A woman has recounted her terrifying ordeal as a pregnant teen on a radio show in Ireland.

Marion Kelly claims she was kept hidden away for four months by her parents, taking drastic action to ensure no-one found out about her pregnancy.

The then 17-year-old from Cork confided in a teacher, who took her to see a nun—a friend of her parents—and told them she was 20 weeks along.

"No one was told and no one was to be told I was pregnant," she explained while appearing on Neil Prendeville's RedFM show, according to RSVP Live.

"I was reared in a public house in Cork and customers would have to come through a private part of the house so I’d be made stay upstairs for about four months."

Man carjacks pregnant woman in Sydney

Man carjacks pregnant woman in Sydney A heavily pregnant woman has tried in vain to stop a man from driving off in her car with two of her children inside in a Sydney carjacking.

"The gynaecologist, with the permission of my parents, decided that the baby was going to be born a month early.

"There was a relation coming over from England so it had to be done and dusted before they came.

"[Labour] was horrendous. Something I’ll never forget. I’ll never forget it until the day I die. I remember blood all over the beds and the nurses were looking at me and saw what I was going through."

Kelly gave birth to her son in hospital but says she was immediately taken to Bessborough Mother & Baby Home by ambulance.

"I knew then [the baby] was going to be taken, but I didn’t realise that once the doors of the ambulance were opened a nun would be there with her arms open to take my child."

As a result of her traumatic experience, the Cork woman says she suffered with chronic alcoholism.

"It was the worst thing that ever happened me. When they say it gets worse, believe me it does. It absolutely destroyed my life."

Kelly went on to marry and have another three children.

And 26 years after her baby boy was taken from her, the son she named Anthony, found her.

"He came down to Cork to meet me. I explained what happened and thought it went well even though it was very emotional.

"The second time he met me he wanted to leave me at that.

"I was brokenhearted and it was years and years after before we had contact again."
