Having child delivered by non-Muslim men
*Please appropriately reference this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: Is it permissible for a (pregnant) Muslim woman to go to the hospital to have her child delivered whilst she knows those who will be delivering the child will be non-Muslim men?

Response: If the situation necessitates, there is no harm in that if she is unable to find anyone other than non-Muslim (men); We have read this is not permissible for her except with a Muslim doctor, however, where is the evidence for that? And (we know) matters of necessity have rulings specific to them.
