Depressed Mum Who Fled Hospital Found Dead With Her 6-day old Baby (Photos)
Specialist teams were searching for newborn Zaani Tiana Bevan Malbrouck today after her mother Charlotte Bevan, 30, was found dead in the Avon Gorge in Bristol last night.
Officers this afternoon found the child’s body on a cliff face overlooked by the Clifton Suspension Bridge, close to where her mother died.
Miss Bevan had walked out of the Bristol Maternity Hospital wearing thin hospital slippers and no coat, with her daughter wrapped in
University Hospitals Bristol Trust said today they would launch a ‘thorough review’ into the care Charlotte and Zaani Tiana received, including security on the postnatal ward.
Other mothers from the city have accused the hospital of ‘letting down’ the mother and her new baby, because Miss Bevan (Pictured with her boyfriend and baby daddy)was known to have had problems with depression.
The 30-year-old may have stopped taking medication for depression so that she could breastfeed Zaani. She is also understood to have been treated for schizophrenia and was also severely sleep deprived.
