A 22-year-old woman charged with the murder of a baby found in a Lower Hutt garden has been remanded for a month awaiting another report for the court.

Lower Hutt District Court judge Ian Mill remanded the woman and continued suppression of her name and details.

Her lawyer Sandy Baigent said further reports would be needed.

The woman is now on bail.

She was charged after a newborn girl, thought to be less than a day old, was discovered by another woman who was hanging out washing at her Taita Drive property in September last year.

Her 58-year-old father has since pleaded guilty to incest with the woman.

He is yet to be sentenced.
