Jessa Duggar’s Home Didn’t Go As Planned – Rushed To The ER
Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald’s new baby boy arrived on Thursday, November 5th, and the parents couldn’t be happier. Jessa Duggar had decided on a ‘home-birth’, but it didn’t go quite as well as she had planned.
Michelle Duggar called 911 to request an ambulance, for Jessa. Apparently, Jessa was bleeding way too much after she had given birth in her home. The father Ben Seewald assures her fans that despite the emergency, Jessa and the baby are both just fine.
“Our sweet baby boy was born last night. He weighed 9 lbs and 11 ounces and is 21 ¼ inches long! He’s precious and both he and Jessa are doing great. Stay tuned — we will share his name soon!” – Ben Seewald
Baby Boy Seewald arrived just days after their one-year wedding anniversary and is the first child for Jessa and Ben. It is important to note some of the dangers surrounding the safety of home births. They are not the best option for every woman. According to the CDC, the rate of out-of-hospital births has been increasing since 2004. As it stands, home births make up fewer than 2% of all births in the U.S.
TheJournal of Midwifery & Women’s Health revealed that a 2014 study of 17,000 midwife deliveries confirmed that, among low-risk women, planned home births result in low rates of interventions without an increase in adverse outcomes for mothers and babies.
Many medical groups like the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, believe that the safest place for a baby to be born is in a hospital. However, everyone is free to choose and they respect the rights of women who make a medically informed decision.
