The woman who gave birth on the Dutch version of "Big Brother" left the show after her fellow contestants criticized her parenting skills.

Tanja, 27, said she was sick of being called a bad mother by her housemates, the BBC reported Friday.

"I want to enjoy maternity, not feel annoyance," she told the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. "I'll be happy when I am among normal people again."

Netherlands TV broadcast footage taped when Tanja gave birth to Joscelyn Savanna Oct. 18. "Big Brother" agreed to limit the infant's camera time and let the new mother spend time with the baby off camera as well, but Tanja said her housemates' constant jibes became more than she could bear.

A "Big Brother" executive expressed regret over her decision to leave because the parenting theme was "good television."
