Wendla's and Melchior's Unborn Child is the result of Melchior raping Wendla in the hayloft. Wendla discovers she is pregnant after visiting a doctor due to "anemia" (or chlorosis, as mention in the play). Frau Bergmann laters takes Wendla to Mother Schmidt to get an abortion, which proves fatal and kills Wendla and her child.
