delivered

Delivery completed. A child is delivered only when it is born alive. State v Joiner, 11 NC (4 Hawks) 350, 353. The fact that a bastard child was born dead before institution of a proceeding to recover the expenses incident to its mother's confinement precludes the maintenance of the proceeding where the statute which authorizes it contemplates that the child be born alive in providing for the making of a provision for the child's support, and that it may be instituted by a woman if "pregnant with child which, if born alive, may be a bastard child" and that "before proceeding to trial the complainant must file a declaration stating that she has been delivered of a bastard child begotten by the accused." Inman v Willinski, 144 Me 116, 65 A2d 1, 7 ALR2d 1390.
