Her family said she then went to a home on Chicago's Southwest Side after a woman on Facebook said she had a stroller and baby clothes she wanted to give away, according to the Chicago Tribune
A neighbor saw the woman standing outside her front door with the baby, who was wrapped in a white sheet.

'I said, "What's up?' and she said, "I just had the baby. It's not breathing,"' the neighbor, who did not want to be identified, told the Chicago Sun-Times. 'She said, "I stood up and the baby came out."'  

The neighbor said the paramedics never went inside the house.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Chicago police special victims unit at 312-747-8274.
