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.

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.
Now Foxtrot has his own Instagram account -- called "humanitarian_pup" -- with regular updates on his activities around the camps.
Human rights groups have long campaigned for the nearly half a million effectively stateless Rohingya children in Bangladesh’s refugee camps to be allowed access to quality education, warning of the costs of a "lost generation."
While world attention remains focussed on other major issues, the threat of genocide continues for an estimated 600,000 Rohingya Muslims still inside Myanmar and the international

Of the almost 2,000 samples, only 12 had antibodies, said Reinhard Berner from the University Hospital of Dresden, adding the first results gave no evidence that school children play a role in spreading the virus particularly quickly.
The test will be done on fully automated and highly sophisticated system using the Electro-chemiluminescence immunoassay (ECLIA) method that uses plasma, or serum samples.
