Because People magazine has an exclusive on the birth of Jessa Duggar Seewald’s baby boy there’s not been a lot of information available. TMZ just published a report that Jessa tried to have a home birth but something didn’t go right and she was taken from the Duggar compound to a local hospital. That baby boy weighed an impressive 9 pounds 11 ounces and was over 21 inches long. Might be that he was just too big to come naturally at home. That is a huge first baby!
No word on if Jessa had a C-section or just needed some assistance such as suction or forceps to move things along. More as it becomes available. But looking at the photo up on the Seewald family blog the baby looks remarkably smooth and perfect in his head, the perfect shape of his head leads me to think he was born via a C-section.
The important thing is that mother and son seem to be doing well.
