The Duggar family midwife service, A Mommy's Butterfly Midwifery, that helped train Jill Dillard to sit for her Certified Professional Midwife exam says that Jessa Seewald did not have a licensed midwife at her birth. A midwife with the group, Sarah Katherine Walker, went on further to say that she has personally witnessed the woman attending Jessa's birth make unwise decisions in the past, and that though the woman calls herself a midwife, she has no license or training of any sort. The midwife service, who is still very close to the Duggars, say that they are not out to bash the Duggars for their birthing choices, but rather just wanted to clear the air about accusations that their midwives were involved in Jill and Jessa's births. Therefore, they clearly state that the midwives from A Mommy's Butterfly Midwifery did not attend births for either Duggar daughters. However, following the somewhat heated post to the midwife's Facebook page, Jill's midwife came forward stating there is a lot of inaccurate information surrounding Jill's birth and her role in that birth.
A Mommy's Butterfly Midwifery has taken to Facebook to clear their name regarding Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald's scary home birth experiences. The midwife group was featured on 19 Kids and Counting in the past as Jill and Jana were training under the group's midwives. However, despite their connection, the group says that neither Jill nor Jessa used their services for their births.
Others on the post came to Jill's midwife's defense, claiming that there was more to the birth than was disclosed on television. In fact, one person on the post says that Jill's midwife was investigated and cleared in relations to the Duggar daughter's birth. That same person claims that the midwife was not properly informed by Jill or her assistant to know that Jill had been in labor for so long or having difficulties. Instead, it was noted that the midwife never even made it to the birth, due to lack of communication by Jill's team at her home.
