Depressed Mom Slammed the Infant on Table, Surferd Internet Hours Before Calling for Help

This week, a Texas mother was taken into custody for allegedly shaking her infant daughter multiple times before “slamming” her onto a changing table. Rather than going to the hospital or calling for help, the mother allegedly searched online for “Shaken Baby Syndrome.”

On Wednesday, Clarissa Nicole Stewart was arrested and charged with a first-degree felony of one count of injury to a child.
Regarding the incident on November 15, Stewart was checked into the Taylor County Detention Centre. Authorities say she is being held on a $100,000 bond.

The infant was flown by helicopter to Cook Children’s Medical Centre in Fort Worth, 150 miles west of Abilene, due to the severity of her injuries.

Authorities said that although the victim was initially taken to the hospital because she was “twitching and not acting right,” the medical staff soon realized that the newborn’s injuries were unusual.
According to medical professionals, the baby had bruises on her torso and around her eye in addition to a subdermal hemorrhage, or bleeding in the space between the skull and the brain.

Authorities said that during that time, she allegedly searched the internet for, “What are symptoms of shaken baby syndrome,” “Why is baby sleeping more than usual” “How long for shaken baby symptoms to appear,” and “Why is my 2-month-old shaking.”

Additionally, the station revealed that texts exchanged between Stewart and her spouse might suggest that she was experiencing postpartum depression.
