Don't make me give birth to our daughter alone : Amy's story

Facebook campaign :

'My name is Amy Jelassi. I am 33 weeks' pregnant, expecting our baby daughter on the 30th December 2013.

'My husband's court hearing for a family visit visa is the 30th January 2014. I would just like the court date to be sooner so that my husband can be with me to support me through the birth of our daughter. That is all that I'm asking for.

'Please give us the chance to do what any other family can do - easily!!!

'This should be a right for any family. We are a married couple who are expecting our first child. I am a BRITISH woman married to a Tunisian man. I don't see why it should be a problem for my husband to be allowed on a family visit visa.

'A visa that will let him see the birth of his daughter. Just like any other father!

'It's devastating and heartbreaking for us to be going through this, and we are hoping someone can hear us out there. And that we can stop being judged, or categorised, as not genuine, or overstayers.

'Everyone deserves a chance. This is happening to me and to many other families because of new immigration rules and regulations.

'It's sickening. It's so stressful for a pregnant woman like me!'
