Psychiatrist Says Lindsey Lowe Suffered from Shock

By Associated Press | 

A psychiatrist testified Friday that a mother charged in the deaths of her newborn twins did not know she was pregnant and suffered from shock from blood loss when she gave birth on a toilet.

Dr. William Kenner told jurors that Lindsey Lowe felt sick and thought she was going to die, but didn't realize she had given birth until she reached down and felt an ear.

Kenner said Lowe, who is now 26, fell to the floor afterward, hit her head on the floor and lapsed in and out of consciousness.

Under cross-examination, Kenner acknowledged that Lowe had told her mother she was OK, when the mother knocked on the bathroom door before she gave birth. Kenner also said that he had no idea how much blood Lowe lost.
