Disbelieving men performing the birth for Muslim Women

Is it permissible for the Muslim woman to go to a hospital to give birth whilst knowing that those that will perform the birth are disbelieving men?

There is no harm in that if she is compelled and cannot find anyone but kuffaar (disbelievers), as we have read that it is not permissible for her except to go to a Muslim doctor, but where is the proof for that? However the necessities have for them rulings.
