The woman cannot be named for legal reasons.
She came to Britain in July last year to attend a training course with an airline at Stansted airport, and was taken to a psychiatric facility after a panic attack. Her relations believe it was due to her failure to take regular medication for an existing bipolar condition.
A statement of facts has been released by Essex County Council.
It makes for very interesting reading. It details the legal proceedings in the case over the past 15 months.
If the statement is accurate it suggests the Telegraph's initial description of "something of a panic attack" was an understatement.
It also suggests that it was not social workers but the Health Authority that made the application, and that the mother may well have been able to see the baby after delivery.
The adoption judgement in the case is now available to read here. It makes for harrowing reading.
