After walking for hours with her husband and three children, Khatun took a treacherous sea journey in bad weather to reach the southeastern tip of Bangladesh.
The family took shelter beside a road and erected a makeshift roof with twigs and a polythene sheet.
Several hours later, Khatun gave birth to Ahmad Shah in the pouring rain, helped by other Rohingya women also sheltering nearby.
"I was so tired. Yet I wanted to give a safe birth to my unborn baby," the 29-year-old mother told AFP.

Some 200,000 Rohingya took part in a rally at the world's largest refugee settlement on Sunday to mark what the refugees describe as "Genocide Day".

He said his other children still remembered the trauma of the perilous journey.
"I am so happy for Shah that he didn't have to go through those woes. I will make him an Islamic scholar someday," he added.
