Pauline Goodwin

2005 Jun 1

Pauline Goodwin went into hospital to give birth to a baby daughter in June 2005, where social workers asked her to sign the papers that would entitle them to put the baby into care. Goodwin refused.

When the baby was just three days old, Goodwin was summoned to court and instructed to leave her baby in the care of the hospital. The judge issued a care order and by the time Goodwin left the courtroom, the social services had already dropped by the hospital to collect her baby.
