Grandmother: Baby in jail lacks necessities

The grandmother of a baby girl who was born recently while the mother was in jail, has told the Times that that the child lacks basic necessities.

The grandmother claimed that the authorities lied in giving the impression that volunteers are helping to care for the newborn.

The child is reported to have been put in a special unit of the Bordelais Correctional Facility (BFC) where her seventeen year old mother can care for the youngster.

The mother is serving time for intentionally causing harm.

The grandmother of the newborn told the Times that her daughter, who is reported to have entered the BFC while pregnant, is locked up like an animal.

In relation to the newborn baby girl, she asserted that the child has developed a rash.

She told the times the baby has no pampers or powder.

In addition, the woman declared that reports about volunteers assisting the imprisoned teenager with her child are untrue.

She told the Times that despite having seven children herself, the youngest being three years old, she is trying to help her imprisoned daughter.

With regard to the charge of intentionally causing harm, the mother of the jailed teen described the wound inflicted by the teenager on the complainant as a scratch, not a stabbing.

She told the Times that the complainant, of her own free will,  even visited the young mother in prison Wednesday.

“She wanted to see the baby,” the woman said.

According to her, the complainant has always been saying that she wanted to bring the matter with the incarcerated teen to an end.

The mother of the jailed teenager, who did not want her identity known, also dismissed reports that her daughter is due to be released next month.

The  imprisoned teenager is now mother to two children by different fathers, it was revealed.

    The baby has no pampers and powder?? Hello. this is not the job of the prison to provide that. the baby is not incarcerated. (its harsh but true sadly)
    The baby has nothing BUT GRANDMA WEAVE ON FLICK EH.

    furthermore this mother is obviously going out of her waters to defend this daughter of hers in this article, which is not a good sign.

    And just because the complainant visited the girl in jail to see the baby, doesnt mean your daughter shouldnt be punished. forgiveness doesnt mean you still cant pay for your crime.

    I hope the baby gets that rash looked at. Maybe one of those DOCTORS taking all our money in town can volunteer to care for that baby for FREE. thats why i try not to give these docs my money, because they do nothing much for society. but i digress

      As the law decided to put thst mother back in prison after givrn birth they should care for thst babay. That baby is nothine but inocent. If they are going to keep the baby in jail they should provide pampers,water,amens baby powder as it is needed to help treat and prevent rash. Yes the mother did wrong but the child should not be punished.

    If the authorities chose to leave the baby at Bordelais, then it stands to reason that they are responsible for taking care of that rash and attending to her needs.

    Guys when some one is pressured to talk they will remove themselves of all blames. The question that should be asked of the mother why is the child in this position. She seemed so concern now but what happened before.
    There are several sides to a story. You mean her don’t break the law and was incarcerated for a year. The magistrate must be crazy. Come on.
    I agree that blames are to be passed around but let’s be real.

    As much as I agree that people should face consequences for their actions I do not agree to the baby being where she is. Ppl might say the best place for a child is with mommy but if mommy is in jail that child should be placed in a better environment like a good home. Newborns need alot of care and u cnt have them in that filth. Im surprised thats even an option. And dont gimme that breastfeeding crap my breast milk came two weeks after my son was born so he had to get formula and he is healthy. Of the young mother Must spend time in there to me the baby shouldn’t. Just my opinion tho. And to the grandmother maybe u could take ur granddaughter out of there. Even if u don’thave much others have survived URL will.

    I didn’t know the prison was responsible to provide pampers and powder for the baby. First of all they all knew she was pregnant before she went to prison. Didn’t she start buying layette before she went to prison? She didn’t get pregnant in there nor has she spent nine months in there. Where is the father of the child to help with providing the necessities for the child. The grand mother can as well take the child and care for her. Next you will hear her appealing to the public for assistance in buying food clothes and other necessities for mother and child.

    it takes two to make a baby where’s the child’s father? there have been other children born at the Prison where the family take the kids. why can’t grandma take her grand child she so much care about and do the right thing until the mother gets out. Why can’t the father man up to his responsibility and take his child and care for. the role and tumble in the bed was nice but missing in action as baby there

    I totally agree with the ppl who have said the prison not responsible for her child ……the brand mother playing like she so concerned, why her daughter wasn’t living with her ? Why her daughter was left in other ppls care and she still wasn’t behaving till she got placed at BCF why only now she coming on TV an talk like she so concerned she should have come on tv feom the day her daughter was sent there knowing her daughter was already pregnant and would be in prison by the time she is due to give birth……where the person who got her pregnant ? If she wasn’t in prison who wud gibe her pampers and powder and otjer things …….. Now one more thing ….where her first child at????? Ask the grand mother !!!!!she got taken away from her because of the life she lived and things she did ………the child is now adopted by someone not a family member ……where was the grand mother then ??????? Did the mother help her with the first child ???? She should use the money from her weave to get her some pampers an powder ………talking nonesense .when any other person in prison what is limited to them getting from the prison is what they get anything else their family brings it to the brison and if its allowed there then they get it .so her family shud be the ones to bring her stuff for herself and her child whatever these necessities are .she do the crime she do the time . Her kid ain’t the first to be born in prison ……

    St. Lucia need to step up on their game. No one is responsible for this baby except the father. Find out who the hell he is and start putting pressure on him to take care of this child. Too many time they out there running woman, some of them are even married and sleeping with those young girls but don’t want to take responsible for their actions. The law need to do more for those young girls. So when some of you come on there and want to bash the grandma, saying that her weave is on fleek! Really she does not have a dick, she is not the father. Because of that she have to walk dirty and her hair undone? As a mother do you know what she is going through? Going to bed or that’s if she is getting any sleep at all knowing that her daughter is in jail with a newborn? Some of you need to grow up. This is why there are so many suicide in st. Lucia because instead of encouraging the youths to do better, you all are putting them down. If you cannot contribute then just shut up.

    Lol this is hilarious. The media has opened a door for irresponsible parents to blame the system, while getting a few days of fame.

    The parents aren’t able to monitor and control the children they birthed, but the system is supposed to single handedly get water from rocks…gtfoh!!! At the end of the day it still takes a village (which includes the parents) to raise and direct a child. Bad behavior is learnt, no child is born “bad”.

    Keep this up and the new tax deduction will be to pay welfare for these mothers who forgot use of birth control.

    That grandmother in in no better position to take care of this baby. This poor innocent child should not be imprisoned with a mother who cant care for her. this baby should be placed into adoption. I wish I were in a better position to provide assistance just for the sake of that child. it really hurts to think of babies being imprisoned knowing how hard it can be sometimes.

    Lets hope this child get help and grows up to be a strong indivual who will work hard to get out of this state if he/she survives to do it. Times like this make ,me wish I could have volunteered service if I didnt hv a baby myself.
