Bombshell As Fertility Study In Nigeria Shows Male Infertility Rates Higher / Loosing Ur Virginity 2a Man After Marriage Dose Not Make Him Value U D More / What Drug Can I Take To Flush Out A Few Weeks Old Pregnancy (2) (3) (4)
|Had Quins Due To Over Dose Of Potent Fertility Drug by olamitunde(m): 2:03am On Jul 06, 2011|
A NIGERIAN mum who headed for Britain when she learned she was pregnant is battling to stay after having QUINS, The Sun can reveal.
Bimbo Ayelabola, 33, had been taking twice the prescribed dose of a potent fertility drug while at home in Lagos.
Within days of discovering she was expecting she obtained a visitor's visa for Britain.
And she ended up getting the best treatment possible on the NHS following an emergency Health Service scan which showed she was expecting four babies.
After months of taxpayer-funded care - costing an estimated £200,000 - Bimbo had a complex Caesarean op 32 weeks into her pregnancy on April 28.
Doctors at Homerton Hospital, in Hackney, East London, then discovered there was a fifth baby.
Now, two months later, Bimbo is applying to the Home Office to extend her stay in the UK because boys Tayseel and Samir and girls Aqeelah, Binish and Zara - although healthy - are too fragile to fly home.
Bimbo is also arguing that there is no "support network" of family and friends left in Nigeria to help her bring up her kids because they are all in the UK already.
Bimbo's husband Ohi, 37, is not. He came to Britain to visit her in hospital but fled back to Nigeria after discovering it was a multiple pregnancy and he faced being responsible for the brood.
The Home Office will now decide whether to grant Bimbo a six-month extension of her visa which expired on June 27.
Officials are also considering sending her a bill for the huge cost of her six months of care which included treatment by consultants, paediatricians, nurses, midwives, social workers and back-up staff. But Bimbo would be unable to pay anyway.
She insists she had no idea she was expecting more than one child when she sought a UK visa after getting pregnant in November.
