Some couples contemplate the possibility they may be forced to deliver their baby at home.
However, it's not something Alanna and Danny Finn thought would ever happen to them.
The family home is literally a stone's throw away from South West Healthcare's Warrnambool Base Hospital.
When the couple's firstborn Phoebe was born, the pair walked to the hospital and Mrs Finn was in labour for several more hours after their arrival.
However, this was not the case for baby Franklin, who was born at home about 11pm on Monday night.
Mrs Finn said she went to the hospital about 5pm on Monday because she was concerned her baby was not moving a lot.
She was given the all clear and returned home.
Mrs Finn said she was experiencing some pains, but she thought they may have been braxton hicks contractions.
It never crossed her mind that she needed to get to the hospital in a hurry.
Mrs Finn told her husband she was going to the bathroom and was ready to go to the hospital. He called the hospital and a nurse heard some odd sounds coming from Mrs Finn in the background.
"She said 'you're going to need to call an ambulance'," Mr Finn said.
Instinctively he asked if they could just come down the road to help, but was told that was against protocol.
Mr Finn went to his wife's aid and discovered her water had broken.
With the help of an operator, he delivered a healthy four kilogram son Franklin Alexander Finn.
Mrs Finn said she was extremely proud of her husband. "I can't speak highly enough of him," she said.
