'A Gold Coast mother who allegedly murdered her newborn son and cleaned up his body and placenta before her other children woke has been refused bail.

Jodie Renee Tarnawskyj, 37, wept in the dock as the details of the case were read out in the Supreme Court in Brisbane.

The crown alleged Tarnawskyj deliberately hid the pregnancy as part of a premeditated plan to kill the boy, who they say was born alive.

It is argued she either suffocated, choked or neglected to save his life after giving birth at her Gold Coast home on June 8, 2014.'
