Lindy Chamberlain has admitted that she is grateful that her stint in prison has made it better for other Australians, despite being improperly imprisoned by the death of her baby.
It is almost four decades since the nine-week-old Azaria had disappeared while Mrs. Chamberlain and then husband Michael and their three children were on a camping trip to Uluru in central Australia in August 1980.
The body of the baby was found a week later, four kilometers from the tent.
Despite protesting that a dingo was taking and killing her baby, a heavily pregnant Mrs. Chamberlain was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1982 after being found guilty of the murder of Azaria.
Now known as Mrs. Chamberlain-Creighton, she sat down with Anh Do in a rare and emotional interview for the upcoming fourth season of Anh & # 39; s Brush With Fame.

In a sneak preview of the upcoming episode obtained by News Corp, she expresses no bit of bitterness about the three years that she was wrongfully serving behind bars.
& # 39; If I had not experienced everything, we would not have the laws that we have in Australia, now we have an independent forensic science as a result of that trial. If I had been exhausted at that time, if I had not been found guilty of the trial, we would not have those laws, & # 39; Chamberlain-Creighton told Do.
& # 39; What happened to me has been able to improve it for other Australians and I am grateful for that. & # 39;

She revealed that faith gave her the power and the will to continue while she was in prison.
& # 39; For me, I was never a victim because I knew I had a clear conscience and God knew I had a clear conscience, so it doesn't matter what anyone else believes because I and God knew the truth. & # 39 39;
She collapsed as she recalled the fears that her sons suffered from being divorced when she was imprisoned.
A month after she was sentenced, she gave birth to her fourth child, daughter Kahlia at Darwin Hospital, which she described as a painful process.
& # 39; I knew at the time she was born that they would take her away from me. So at every moment of the birth I fought it, it was like "keeping her inside, she is yours, the moment she is gone, she is not", & she said.

Four investigations and one investigation by the government followed the death of Azaria.
Mrs. Chamberlain-Creighton told police Azaria was wearing a matine cover the night she disappeared, which was never found.
Her then husband Michael, a pastor of the Seventh-day Adventist, was convicted of accessory after the murder, but was later acquitted.
His wife was acquitted and released in 1986 after the Englishman David Brett fell on his ascent Ayers Rock – today under the Aboriginal name Uluru -, ended up next to the matineeber that was essential for her defense.
The couple divorced five years later in 1991.
A third judicial investigation in 1995 could not determine the cause of death before a fourth judicial investigation heard new evidence of dingo attacks, including three deadly attacks on children since 1995.

Mrs. Chamberlain-Creighton was eventually acquitted in 2012 and received compensation of 1.3 million dollars from the Australian government for illegal imprisonment.
Her former husband Michael died two years ago at the NSW CentralWorld because of complications from acute leukemia, 72 years old.
A preview for the upcoming series shows the surprise and delight of Chamberlain-Creighton when she first sees Do & # 39; s portrait.
& # 39; Thank you. I appreciate it, & she says before she gives Do a huge hug.
