LeeAnn Biennaime, went to a medical center in Portsmouth after she experienced severe contraction very similar to the signs she had been told to respond to during birthing classes.
The 27-year-old new mother said she was certain that they were going to be admitted.
Revealing her shock to Good Morning America, LeeAnn said she was told to go home because she was 2 centimeters dilated rather than 5 centimeters.
LeeAnn says just a few hours after she got home, her baby made his entrance to the world with her husband, Leo Bienaime, 29, having to assist her deliver their baby in the bathtub.
The incident happened so quick for them to call for help or send her back to the hospital.
Baby Joachim’s dad, Leo, told Good Morning America the baby ''slid out, he caught him, flipped, wrapped him in a towel and handed him to his mother.''
Leo disclosed that he wouldn’t have driven back home had he known that his expectant wife would give birth to their baby.
The couple said the hospital later apologized greatly for the unfortunate incident.
