A native doctor has urged women not to throw away or abandon their babies. She said this after a newborn was found floating in a river on Wednesday.
The baby was found in a river in Soshanguve, Tshwane, South Africa and a native doctor identified as Sophie Mndawe (40) was saddened by the discovery. She pleaded with new mums not to throw away their babies.
Sophie said seeing the baby broke her heart because she couldn’t have kids.
“It’s unfortunate that those who’re able to have kids don’t want them,” she said. “I wish the mum could have given the baby to me and not dumped the innocent soul in the river.”
The baby was found by passers-by floating in the water in the early hours of the morning
