Teenage mum of baby thrown in trash is found - says she didn't know she was pregnant | News by Samui TimesShe is a 17 year old student trainee at a factory in the Suranaree Industrial estate.

The baby, aged 7-8 months was found dead but fully formed and wrapped n a student’s shirt.

The mother said that she was unaware that she was pregnant. Her friends started teasing her that she was getting fat and so two months ago she started taking slimming tablets.

On Tuesday morning she had what she thought were stomach pains and went to the toilet. There she gave birth alone to the stillborn fetus.

In a panic she said she wrapped her child – a girl – in a shirt and threw her in the rubbish bin outside her room.

She is currently in hospital after suffering internal bleeding.

Police said they would wait until she recovers before interviewing her further. They will then decide the appropriate action to take.
