The mother has a teenage child who was taken into care arising from allegations made against her partner.
He is the father of this newborn infant who the court heard was born Wednesday morning and was the subject of an emergency care order from the District court by Thursday teatime.
The baby's lawyers say the mother then went to a friend's house which was surrounded by gardaí.
The High Court will tomorrow hear arguments as to whether the infant is lawfully in HSE custody.
