A New Jersey mother decided there was no time like the present to get a little extra pampering before delivering her second child last week.
Anna Rubinstein of Emerson made a pit stop at the Eden Nail salon in Glen Rock while in labor last Wednesday.
Every mom-to-be wants to feel good, right?
Rubinstein took that extra time to be sure she did before delivery. Her first child's labor took more than a day, so she figured she had plenty of time.
Rubinstein's labor progressed quickly after she got the manicure. Baby Damien didn't wait for mom to finish a massage, manicure and pedicure. Her husband was summoned to the salon, as was an ambulance. Sergei Rubinstein arrived just in time to deliver his son in the salon's bathroom.
NewJersey.com reported that the bundle of joy arrived before Rubinstein's nails were dry.
The salon's owner Nancy Wang was en route to the salon. When she arrived, she saw the Rubinsteins cradling the baby in the bathroom. The paramedics also arrived shortly after the baby was born.
"Everybody was very nervous," said Wang. "I was very happy the baby was born and everyone was doing fine."
