February 1st, 2017 – Pictures: Nigerian Woman Barred From Delivering Babies In Chicago Incurs £500,000 After Delivering Quadruplets In UK
Meet 43-year-old Priscilla, a Nigerian nurse who was prevented from entering Chicago by border officials last year November.
With a valid visa, the officials questioned her for not having documents to prove that she can pay for the birth of her 4 babies before sending her back.
While returning to Nigeria through Heathrow Airport in November 2016, Priscilla who was just 24 weeks long at that time went into labour.
She was rushed to one of the largest hospitals in the UK, the Queen Charlotte’s and Chelsea Hospital in west London, part of Imperial College Hospital, where she was delivered the four babies.
One of her babies died shortly after birth while another died few days later.
She has incurred over £500,000 as the cost of treating one baby in neonatal intensive care in the hospital is £20,000 a week.
Priscilla who is currently staying in a hostel run by a charity organization said her hubby can’t come to Britain to help her because he doesn’t have money to secure a visa.
