I agree that she had given up on her life. I was just pointing out that if a midwife was present, it would not necessarily have survived.

I do think childbirth in the magical and Muggle way is precisely the same and that she just didn't have enough strength. She was already exhausted and weak when she came to London. Childbirth in such a state was just too much for her body.

As for brining in a doctor, I am sure she didn't care anymore what happened to her and didn't ask for anyone.
