12 year old delivers baby at Georgetown Hospital
A 12 year old girl is resting comfortably and being closely monitored after she gave birth to a baby earlier this week at the Georgetown Hospital. Hospital sources confirmed today that the pre teen was admitted to the hospital early in the week and doctors immediately decided that they would have to perform a caesarian operation on the young child. The girl’s case is known to the Child Care and Protection Agency which has been monitoring her throughout the pregnancy and now that she has given birth. A senior official of that agency today told Capitol News that up to late this afternoon checks were made on her.
The man believed to be responsible for the young girl’s pregnancy is currently locked up on remand in the Camp Street jail after he was charged with raping her. Sources say the man is her stepfather. That case made its way to the courts a few months ago and the man remains locked up as the case progresses.
Hospital staff were this afternoon tightlipped over the delivery and would only say that the young girl is being taken care of and closely monitored. “She is doing fine and the baby is doing just as well”, a hospital source said.
Just a few months ago a 13 year old girl gave birth to a baby at the same hospital.
