The homeowners, who have only been in the house for less than a fortnight, discovered the child after hearing it's screams shortly after 2.30pm on Friday afternoon, the publication reported.

The newborn girl was rushed to Blacktown Hospital for further tests and she has since been given a clean bill of health. However authorities are appealing for the mother to come forward.

"We're really concerned about her health," Acting Inspector David McInerney from Blacktown Police told reporters on Saturday.

"Childbirth can be quite traumatic and we're worried for her safety and wellbeing, both physically and mentally. We're trying to help her.

"It's very concerning, but she's not in any trouble from police. I want to stress that.

"We're appealing to her to come forward, to get some help, and let us help her."

The woman has been urged to attend a hospital, call an ambulance or attend a police station as soon as possible.

The baby remains at Blacktown Hospital on Saturday, and will be cared for by the Department of Communities and Justice after she is discharged.

Detectives on Friday gathered CCTV footage from neighbouring residents showing a car arriving at the home, which they believe could assist their investigation. They are reportedly combing the area for any sign of childbirth and are searching for any witnesses who can assist.

The location where the baby was left is believed to be "completely random" and had no connection to the mother, police said.

Authorities are unsure of the child’s ethnicity but the baby has a fairer complexion.
