A woman in Ukraine gave birth a day after surviving a Russian airstrike on a children's hospital and maternity ward.

Mariana Vishegirskaya gave birth to a daughter, named Veronika, on Thursday in Mariupol, Ukraine, according to the Associated Press.

Images taken by an AP photographer show Vishegirskaya recovering in bed after the birth, with her newborn and husband by her side.

In the photos, Vishegirskaya is wearing the same polka dot outfit she was photographed in the day before as she rushed to evacuate the attacked hospital in Mariupol, a city in southeastern Ukraine.

After the attack, Vishegirskaya was photographed with blood on her face, carrying a bag and blanket as she made her way down stairs to evacuate.
