Ruby Lee's Water Birth Didn't Go as Planned
When Tampa mom-to-be Tanja imagined her perfect labor and delivery, she wanted a water birth. So she chose the Labor of Love Birth Center in Tampa, FL, knowing she'd have a comfortable and home-like experience. When she went into labor, it looked like her dreams of a water birth would come true. She labored and relaxed in the tub until her chiropractor arrived to give her a little adjustment. Then things didn't go exactly as planned. Her labor progressed so quickly that "she was unable to make it back into the tub as Ruby Lee decided it was time to introduce herself to the world," according to Melissa Cancel of Beauty Thru My Lens Photography. She was there to capture Ruby's birth for the entire family to look back on.
