A young mother says that she went through the most difficult moments in trying to find a shelter so that she could give birth to her child. The first cries of the newborn were heard even during the bombings in the capital Kiev.
Thousands of people are waiting in the underground and waiting for the latest news on social networks. A doctor says that another mother also managed to give birth in a subway station where hundreds of people took refuge.
Against the backdrop of airstrikes on Kiev, residents took refuge in the city's underground subway stations. Subways remained open to accommodate people. Those sheltered on the platforms used the Telegram application to communicate with the outside world.
The image of the war in Ukraine is shocking. Exciting images of premature babies, lined up, wrapped in blankets and towels and rocked by medical staff at a hospital in the Dnipropetrovsk region of Ukraine, have appeared in public. Babies born prematurely were moved to a bomb shelter in Ukraine.
Maternity doctors in Dnipro, a city in eastern Ukraine, are desperately trying to protect newborns.
The babies, who are wrapped and lined up next to each other, are cared for and rocked by the medical staff in the shelter that was improvised on a lower level of the hospital building in the Dnipro region in eastern Ukraine.
The anti-aircraft shelter was improvised on a lower level of the hospital building.
"It simply came to our notice then. In a bomb shelter. Can you imagine? "Dr. Denis Surkov, head of the neonatal unit at the Children's Clinic Hospital in the Dnipropetrovsk region, told the New York Times in a WhatsApp message posted on Twitter.

"In the evening, at the Gurkit in Gostomel, to the sound of sirens, my wife gave birth to a baby girl! This is such an important time for us! We are in a sloping house, in a bomb shelter, with military and operational accommodation and gentle, absolutely calm, medical care and with the people of today. Glory to Ukraine and our soldiers, "wrote a Ukrainian who became the father of a girl last night.
Also in Kiev, still under a rain of bombs, a little boy was born. Between the crumbling walls in the basement of a hospital where they were sheltered by the light of the lamp, three nurses helped the mother to give birth.
