We've all been there. You run into the salon for a quick manicure, thinking you have plenty of time, and the next thing you know you've somehow been there for two hours and have no idea how it happened. One New Jersey mom's "quick" trip to the nail salon recently resulted in far more than just a few unnecessary waxings and a back massage—she wound up walking out with a baby. (Yep.)
Anna Rubinstein was actually aware she was in labor when she swung into her local nail salon for a quick mani-pedi before she went to the hospital. But considering she was in labor with her first baby for close to 42 hours, she figured she had some time to spare. As she later told News 12, she figured she had somewhere in the ballpark of 10 to 12 hours left on the clock, so she went ahead and asked for that extra foot massage.
The mom-to-be's water broke mid-foot massage, and Baby No. 2 started coming fast and furious. Good thing there just happened to be a nurse in the salon getting her nails done, too.
