What's the rule here with being a single mum? Is it illegal to GET pregnant here or just illegal to give birth, if you're not married?
I'd hazard a guess that the 'w----' stamp is nothing more than someone trying to make their story interesting but yes, the baby will be taken away and put in an orphanage.I've heard that an unmarried pregnant woman will be jailed, have the baby taken away when born, and then deported with @[email protected] or some such stamped on the passport. The baby is given a first name only, so that everyone knows that there was no legal father, and raised in a local orphange, adoption being illegal.
I haven't checked this, but it's probably not a good idea to go to a local hospital to find out if you are indeed expecting.
If an already single mother secures a job and the fact of a child is known at all stages, then there's no problem. I know a couple of women happily employed under that status.

The mother will be jailed and deported after serving her sentence.
I recently suffered what appeared to be 'lady problems'. Turned out it was only food poisoning but I was forced to do a pregnancy test. The doc was nice and told me that the insurance company specifically requests that a pregnancy test is carried out in these circumstances. I cannot refuse to take the test and apparently, had she written on my form that I had done a pregnancy test, it would have invalidated all my claims (despite the result being negative) simply because I was single. It's a lose-lose situation considering I cannot refuse to do the test!!
If you fall pregnant and are single, either get a ring on your finger fast or buy a one-way ticket out of here!
Yes, they would! If you are labelled a criminal and found guilty of any crime here, likelihood is that you will be dealt with according to the law. Embassies do not like to interfere here - they will help you as much as they can but they try not to interfere with legal proceedings, so your passport will not matter. There are quite a lot of Westerners in jail for numerous reasons here and your Embassy will try and educate you about the rules and customs here - the rest is up to you - you could choose to put all of it to the test and pay the consequences or abide by the rules (the latter being recommended and generally followed by most expats).Would they seriously take a baby away from a western woman and put it in an orphanage after deporting her? I can't believe they could get away with that. Has that ever happened to a European before?
I stand corrected then! I figured as much that the passport would be a no-go especially as it is an official document.i have known a girl which was romanian, she have had an arab boyfriend, she got pregnant, they both went to jail, later she and her child was deported. and a boyfiend too. it was in 2001. so, dont know, mayb rules has changed. i know for a fact because we were collecting money for her ticket. but just for yr own safety., its beter not to get pregnant while u r single, and get out of this country asap.( she did not have stump in her passport that she is a *****, but she did have id card ish, which was saying that she is a ****.
