The baby boy who was born to Miss Y by Caesarean Section at 26 weeks of pregnancy has had his care order extended.
A judge granted the extension until June 2017 to allow time to consider the mother's health.
Miss Y, an asylum seeker, had sought an abortion on grounds that she was suicidal, having become pregnant as a result of rape before she came to Ireland.
She was assessed by a panel of three experts, but the obstetrician said because the baby was at an advanced stage, it should be delivered.
The woman initially rejected this decision, and went on hunger strike, but eventually agreed for the baby to be delivered by C Section.
Tusla, the Child and Family Agency, had requested the care order extension.
