A heavily pregnant teen lost her unborn baby after her partner kicked her in the stomach, just five days before she was due to give birth, Metro reports.

Jessy Johnson, now 21, was 19 when she fell to the floor in pain after being dealt a “deliberate blow” by her 37-year-old boyfriend Stuart Samson last April, a court heard.

This week Samson was jailed for two years and nine months after pleading guilty to two offences of assault causing grievous bodily harm.

But outside court, Johnson said she was “angry” about Samson’s sentence and apparent lack of remorse, adding no punishment “will bring back my baby”.

Samson was not charged with murder because the baby had not been born, despite the fact Johnson was full term, she added.

Johnson also revealed how she kept the tragedy to herself for days and the heartbreak of having to go along when people would say “not long now”.

She said after the assault, she had gone to stay with her mother and had not reported the incident to police at first.

But days later, she visited the hospital when she could not feel the baby moving and learned she had died. She later pressed charges against Samson.

Prosecutors claimed the baby had died from a lack of oxygen, caused by Johnson’s injuries.

In handing down his sentence, Judge Guy Kearl said the harm was “utterly foreseeable” due to Samson’s “deliberate blow”.

While he could not convict Samson for murder, the judge said the fact Johnson’s baby had died was an “aggravating feature” in sentencing.

    No woman should have to go thru this. She deserves more than that. He deserves more time for killing her baby.

    This is so sad. The baby didn’t ask to be brought into this world that we live in and already getting abused. Sad world we live in.

    I can’t imagine the pain she’s suffered from Losing a child you’ve carried for almost full term to be let down with a horrible incident of someone who was supposed to be a lover!
