i as wondering the same thing cora. was she from the u.s.? was she insured?
i had friends in 2 different european countries with socialized medicine having babies the same time we had ours, and they were almost as bad off as not being insured in this country, comparing everything from neo-natal vitamins in the first trimester to frequency of check-ups, to the actual technology used in the delivery.
i'm very sorry to hear about your friend dina. prayers for her mental and spiritual recovery, and hopefully she'll be blessed with another chance.
