A new father helped his wife deliver her first child in their bathtub after they were sent home from the hospital.

Leo and LeeAnn Beinaime said they went to Naval Medical Center Portsmouth last month to for the birth of their son – but were told to go back home after spending four hours in the waiting room.

LeeAnn told Fox 31: I was told that I sshould come back when my contractions where when you cant really walk and you cant really talk through them.

She said she felt as though it was nearing the time for the birth of her child, but claimed she just has a ordinarily high pain tolerance. Eventually the couple drove 25 minutes home.

Leo said: If I could do it again, I wouldve just sat in the waiting room and not left. We wouldve pitched a tent. We wouldve started a fire. We wouldve straight up camped.
