A woman has been charged over the death of a baby in Melbourne's inner city last month.

Police were called to an apartment building in Kavanagh Street in Southbank on July 18 after the baby was found unresponsive about 7.20am.

Paramedics attempted to resuscitate the seven-month-old, but she died at the scene.

At the time of the incident, a Victoria Police spokeswoman said the exact circumstances surrounding the death were yet to be determined but police were not treating it as suspicious.

On Wednesday a 35-year-old was charged with one count of child homicide. She has been bailed and will appear at Melbourne Magistrates Court on September 2.
