Young mother charged after newborn baby's death

A young mother has been charged following the death of a newborn baby, according to NSW Police.

The 22-year-old is accused of concealing a birth by disposing of a body.

Police say the baby was found dead inside a home at Sydney’s northern beaches in October last year after the woman attended hospital for treatment post-birth.
