Jessa Duggar Seewald may have given birth a few months ago, but fans are just now getting to see it all go down since the Duggars show 19 Kids and Counting was canceled. Now on the new episode of Jill & Jessa: Counting On, everyone will get to see a bit of Jessa’s labor and in a new sneak peak on People she is sharing some of how it all went down. Things didn’t go as planned for Jessa Seewald, but luckily she got a gorgeous and healthy little boy in the end.
In this preview, Jessa has been in labor for 20 hours already. It is 11 a.m. and she is still having contractions. Her sisters Jana and Jinger explain that Jessa has been a trooper and that Ben has been by her side the entire time cheering her on. Next you hear Jessa saying that “this is painful.” Jana Duggar then explains they are hoping for a baby before the end of the day. Labor took a lot longer for Jessa than expected.
Next fans get to hear Michelle Duggar saying how great Jessa is doing in labor. Jessa and Ben are then seen up walking as she is trying to get the baby to come. Michelle says that “Ben was just solid.” He stuck by Jessa’s side through the entire thing and was a great coach obviously. It looks like Jana, Jinger, Ben, and Michelle were the ones that were with her during labor. Ben said that he was feeling the pain too watching Jessa Duggar in so much pain. Labor took quite some time for this baby.
Jinger Duggar calls the rest of the family, who is back at the big house and explains that the baby isn’t there yet, but it could come any minute. Anna Duggar is there along with her children waiting on the baby to get here as well. Jessa Seewald actually ended up in labor for about 48 hours.
Hollywood Life shared that Jessa Duggar Seewald had a rough time after her son was born and had to be rushed to the hospital. Jessa revealed that she had a really rough labor and things didn’t go as planned.
“It was very intense, very long. Everything was different than I expected. I said, ‘That’s it! I’m done! I am going to the hospital and I’m going to get an epidural.’ They asked me if I really wanted to do that and I said, ‘No, I don’t, but I do.’ I wanted to try natural if at all possible.”
Jessa Duggar Seewald ended up having to get a blood transfusion. She shared all about it.
“I tried to keep my head, I was awake and alert. I had dreamed about those first moments, getting to breastfeed right away, all that. And so when I had to go to the hospital, it was a shock.”
Luckily, everything worked out for Jessa Duggar Seewald. It could have been a lot worse. This is the first child for Jessa and Ben Seewald. This week, viewers will finally get to see it all go down and see the details of Jessa having her first baby. When 19 Kids and Counting was canceled, viewers thought that they would miss out on ever getting to see this so it is really exciting that the cameras were able to catch it all and share with fans.
