I can't speak for the laws of other countries but it doesn't seem right, a newborn needs it's mother. I always joke I bought my oldest son "on time". I didn't have insurance and made arrangements with both the doctor and the hospital to make payments towards my bill. I started paying each before the birth but we had a party just before his first birthday - a "Shawn's Mine Now" party.

That is horrible. I don't know what the laws are like in Serbia but I am glad I live in Canada. We have a great medical system. The goverment pays for our hospital and doctors bills. I don't know what the parents could do over their. It is sad because this is the stadge the baby bonds with the mother.
