Obstetrician Yuri German helps women to deliver babies in the Kherson hospital basement.

In Kherson, a city harshly surrounded by the enemy, women in labour hide in the hospital basement. Here they get help from Yura and his two ten-year-old sons. Yura saves newborn Ukrainians, helps women after childbirth, and supports the pregnant ones. Despite the difficulty of the situation, Yuri still jokes on his Facebook page: “I would never have thought that I’d help to deliver babies under such conditions. And that I will teach my sons the Obstetrics Art that early.” Yuri, keep holding on!
