Hospital Holds Baby Hostage

A Serbian hospital has refused to hand a newborn baby back to its mother until she pays her hospital fees.

Macedonian Senija Roganovic gave birth in the Neonatology Hospital in Belgrade two months ago.

But her baby has been kept in the hospital ever since because she has not paid a £4,250 bill for a ten day stay.

She said she had no health insurance in Serbia, and had no way of raising the money to pay the hospital fees.

Roganovic has reportedly fallen ill with worry over the fate of her child and has lost two stones in weight.

Can they really keep your baby for not paying your bill? Have these people not heard of a payment plan?
