‘I can’t take my babies home’


Share post:

THE WOMAN who gave birth to twins with microcephaly two weeks ago has not been able to take them home because of her living conditions.

The 32-year-old mother of three other children told the SUNDAY SUN that her identical twin daughters had been given the all-clear to leave the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, but they remain in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit while she searches for proper accommodation for them.

She was speaking at her City residence – a room located in a three-bedroom house; the other two rooms occupied by two other people.

The mother, who requested anonymity, said environmental health officers who inspected her accommodation after she gave birth, had expressed concern about the surroundings.
