Karlovy Vary – This afternoon, someone put a few-day-old baby girl in the baby box on the grounds of the Karlovy Vary hospital. The girl is fine and has been named Georgia, Ludvík Hess, the initiator of baby boxes in the Czech Republic, informed today. The girl is the 248th baby who was placed in a special facility in the Czech Republic that allows for anonymous placement and quick follow-up care.
Medics found the little girl in the baby box at 2:58 p.m. in the afternoon. She was dressed in a pink jumpsuit that was too big for her. She had a pink knitted cap on her head. “The little girl is fine, and based on the treatment of the navel, I would say that she was born in the maternity hospital. She had a letter with the information that she was born on February 6. The mother regrets that she cannot keep her for serious reasons,” said head nurse Alžběta Novotná.
Georgia is the third child found in the baby box in Karlovy Vary and the 136th girl from the baby box overall.
