LeeAnn Bienaime is a woman who eagerly prepared for the arrival of her baby. She went to many courses to know how to face the time of delivery , but she could never imagine that she would give birth in her own bathtub because the hospital staff sent her back home.
LeeAnn gave birth at 27 years old.
When he began to feel the first contractions he decided to go to the hospital immediately. His house was half an hour away from the nearest medical center and he knew his baby could arrive at any time.
The staff of the Naval Medical Center explained that she was only two centimeters dilated . They told him that they could only enter it when he was five centimeters.
“If everything happened again I would simply have stayed in the hospital until they admitted LeeAnn.”
In the midst of pain; LeeAnn tried to tell them again and again that she was a first-time mother and that she would not know how to take the exact measures of her level of dilation.
Everything was in vain and they were forced to take the road back home . Throughout the journey, the contractions only increased. The couple was very confused and a few minutes after arriving home they understood that the time had come.
“She said she was feeling her head.”
There was no time to drive back to the hospital; so LeeAnn set out in her bathtub to do her best and help her baby during birth. Leo was at his side all the time and it was he who received the baby in his arms.
The couple lives in the city of Chesapeake in Virginia.
Fortunately, baby Joachim was completely safe and sound. His parents needed a couple of hours to process everything that had happened and in the midst of the enormous joy they feel for their baby they cannot help feeling a great indignation at the treatment they received in the hospital. A decision like that could put LeeAnn and her baby’s life at huge risk.
“Now everyone has told me that those in the hospital should never have sent us home.”
The whole family was surprised with the first photo of the baby . In the images you can see an overwhelmed LeeAnn tenderly hugging her little one; but the most observant soon noticed that he was in a place that is not expected for the birth of a baby.
“Everyone asks us if it ‘s shampoo that appears in the background of the photo.”
Fortunately; LeeAnn and her husband were able to receive their little one and now they are at home enjoying every second together . But nevertheless; They have decided to share their story to raise their voices and that no one else is forced to go through this difficult experience.
Do not leave without sharing this note to support so many pregnant women who deserve the best possible medical care.
