A woman emailed me for information on midwives or birth support in Serbia. Can anyone help with this? She wrote to me:
I have a friend due in about 3 months who is in Serbia (her birthplace) and the hospitals there are about as corrupt and brutal as they get. She's terrified. This is her first baby though, and she has also had a fibroid that's been of concern, so she's also unsure of what else she can do.
Do you know any resources that would help her find some midwives or at least some good birth support of any kind? They probably won't allow a doula or even her husband inside the hospital unless she bribes them--it's pretty nightmarish there. But I was hoping there might be some international group that could help her in any way.
I already found what I could through the International Confederation of Midwives, but there is no one listed in Serbia itself. My friend is actually in Belgrade proper; she's a Serbian citizen, her husband is American.
