    That the bread baking was often associated with pregnancy can be seen from the English phrase “To have a bun in the oven” which means “to be pregnant”.

    In Serbian tradition this similarity did not go unnoticed either, because another name for ancient clay bread ovens is “baba” which in Serbian is a word which can mean married woman, mother, grandmother, midwife and birth demon.
