First Born

[Traumatic birth, Emergency c-section, Infanticide, Child loss] After moving and settling down to the countryside, Laura becomes haunted by the cry of a baby continuously and it often affects her emotional health. One day while talking to her mother on the phone, she puts her dog in the basement but later it dies when it ingested rat poison that she had laid out for mice she had seen earlier. Upon hearing the baby's cries, she trips and her water breaks, forcing her to drive herself to the hospital. With complications to labor, Laura goes into an emergency C-section and gives birth to a girl. Once getting home, she sees her baby covered in mice and she violently shakes the baby to get the mice off; Steven is petrified when she sees her shaking the baby, revealing that there are no mice present. She eventually buries her baby alive.
