Where is she actually from? she may want to consider going home for the birth of her next baby - I know a lot of women who do that when they can't find what they want. If not she could consider going to Germany, somewhere where finding a homebirth midwife for her situation is perfectly acceptable or to the UK who are really encouraging women to birth at home - the National Childbirth Trust comes to mind, in fact maybe find a 'Baby-Friendly' Hospital would be the best bet for her, it's a UNICEF initiative that is becoming more and more popular throughout the world - I gave birth in one in the UK and it was a really good experience in comparison to the birth I had here in France - but anyway that's a whole other thread, she may need to check out insurance etc although being in the EU should be basically ok as long as she has the equivalent to an E111 (don't know if that's changed since I used it), however here in france it is advised that you have a private insurance to make up for the difference between the standard french health care and the actual cost of the birth (or any hospital stay for that matter). Maybe there is a LLL group where she may find out some more information about birthing in Romania, although I'm not sure if there is a group, maybe contacting the nearest group to her would be worthwhile I'm sure this isn't the first time this has come up and she may need to plough the way for other mothers! Hope this can give you a few ideas to begin with.
Does she speak/read Romanian? There is a romanian website and message board about all things children related, she might find some answers there:
Bucharest is a very congested city and in the unfortunate event she might need a hospital transfer from a home birth she might not get to the hospital in time-- personally I wouldn't take that chance. Not to mention the poor state of many ER's/hospitals..
Her best bet would be to arm herself with knowledge about VBACs and search high and low for a doctor/practice that would allow her the birth of her choice and if she doesn't find it in Romania, then search the neighboring countries.
I will come back if I have more ideas for her. In the meantime, good luck to her TTC and finding a doctor.
