Jessa Duggar welcomes her fifth baby with husband Ben Seewald


Jessa Duggar and husband Ben Seewald has welcomed their baby number five together on Tuesday, after previously suffering miscarriage.

“Baby is here and we couldn’t be more grateful,” wrote Jessa on her Instagram handle on Saturday, as she shared a picture of her newborn from the hospital.

The Counting On alum also included a link to her YouTube channel, wherein she shares details regarding her birthing process.


She revealed that post being into labor for about 12 hours, she was moved from emergency room to her room, where she was given epidural.

When the doctor informed Jessa that the baby was still “pretty high up,” she had to shut off the epidural. Duggar then followed her midwife’s advice to move into various positions to try and rotate the baby. Once the baby started descending, she felt more contractions and the doctors had readminister the epidural.

She was joined in at the hospital by her husband and mother, Michelle.

The couple tied the knot in 2014 and already share four children – two son, Spurgeon and Henry, and daughters Ivy and Fern.
