Anna Tymchenko was scared. She had been in labour for hours but her hometown was being bombed and her apartment was shaking. She and her husband were trapped with no electricity, running water or doctor.

The small town of Bucha, 30km (18.5 miles) from the capital Kyiv, has faced almost relentless bombardment.

Anna’s husband, Volodymyr, was torn between remaining in Bucha or trying to flee. When they did finally try to escape by car, they had to turn back when they heard that a column of Russian military vehicles was heading their way.

“We then decided to stay in the apartment,” 21-year-old Anna told the BBC.

When she went into labour late on 7 March, she called her neighbours for help. They agreed to come, but none of them had experience delivering babies.

“When the baby’s head came out, we got scared,” one of the neighbours, Viktoria, said. “She was blue and we didn’t know what to do. She didn’t cry at first – we started hitting her, and then she cried and we all cheered.”
