Mum gives birth to miracle baby in Ukraine hospital underground shelter

The mum gave birth in a makeshift ward.

A mum has given birth to a miracle baby in an underground shelter in Ukraine.

As The Sun reports, she welcomed her healthy baby just before 8.30 pm on Friday, February 25th.

The young woman went into labour before reaching the hospital, but luckily officers rushed her there before she gave birth.

The 23-year-old woman was then taken to an underground shelter because of the shelling and bombing.

Hospital staff created a makeshift ward as shelling continued outside.

They ensured the mum had a safe place to give birth.

She welcomed her newborn, named Mia, with the help of the hospital staff.

Former Deputy Head of Ukraine, Hanna Hopko shared a photo of the adorable newborn.

She wrote: “Mia was born in a shelter this night in a stressful environment- the bombing of Kyiv.

“Her mom is happy after this challenging birth-giving.

“When Putin kills Ukrainians we call mothers of Russia and Belarus to protest against Russia’s war in Ukraine.”

She added, “We defend lives and humanity!”

Ukraine’s Minister of Health, Viktor Liashko also commented on the birth.

He said the newborn was “the face of the war”.

“The third day of the war, launched by the Russian occupants, under shelling and explosions, is also erupting lives and the cries of newborn Ukrainians.”

“Two new lives that in their genetic code already have War. We and they will never forget, and we will never forgive!”

He added, “Life goes on, we give birth to children and no one can beat us!”

The Minister said he is “so proud” of the medical professionals.

He said healthcare workers are equal to the military, as well as security forces and rescuers.

352 Ukrainian civilians, including 14 children, have been killed so far.

As the violence enters its fifth day, Putin has issued a frightening nuclear warning.

It is unclear if Putin is genuinely considering launching a nuclear war but the threat has raised serious concerns.
