On the video, a mother is seen slapping her new born baby.
Social Welfare and Development Secretary Corazon "Dinky" Soliman said they will investigate the matter and take prompt action.
In the interview, Soliman said the mother might be suffering from what is called "postpartum depression" - depression suffered by a mother following childbirth, typically arising from the combination of hormonal changes, psychological adjustment to motherhood, and fatigue (Source: Google).
Rosalinda Orobia, social welfare officer, said the mother will undergo a psychological evaluation before she is turned over to an appropriate institution.
