Miss Salt’s immense weight meant the safe delivery of her triplets – daughters Deanna and Daisy, and son Finlee – last August was a major challenge for medics.
It took a 68-strong team and a bill for the NHS of £200,000, including a specially-built operating table for her Caesarean section.
Now back home in Coventry and living on benefits, she says she is too busy to prepare proper meals for her triplets or do much in the way of housework.
Miss Salt, who blames her obesity on a thyroid problem, fell pregnant after seeing her then boyfriend for just four weeks.
They split up halfway through her pregnancy (…)
The house is full of unwashed laundry and piles of toys, and Miss Salt says she and her babies only get dressed and go out once a week to collect her benefits.
And she now wants her own council house: ‘I know how to microwave a meal and make up instant mash, so I think we’d all manage.’
