Joy-Anna Duggar Gives Birth In The Hospital Despite Home-Birth Plans - Were There Complications?
As fans definitely know already, the reality TV star was planning on giving birth at home but ended up going to the hospital anyway. Were there any complications?
Joy-Anna Duggar welcomed her firstborn with husband Austin Forsyth in a delivery room.
‘We’ve got the birth pool set up. We got the house somewhat cleaned out. Now we need to fill up the pool and hopefully set up some beds in the guest bedroom,’ she said in a video but went on to say that she is flexible to a plan B.
‘Prepare for the birth and have plans, but if something does not go as planned then be okay with that and have another plan,’ she advised her viewers.
Gideon Martyn was born on February 23, but the news was only made public yesterday.
In the first ever pic of the baby boy, it looks like he is not at home but in a hospital room.
In addition, later on, more photos featuring friends of the pair holding the baby had the same setting.
The local police department confirmed that the couple did not call 911 while Joy-Anna was in labor so what exactly happened?
Did they go straight to the hospital?
Fans of Counting On must know that her older sister Jill encountered some issues with birthing at home as well.
After more than 70 hours of labor, Jill was rushed to the hospital.
‘I went to the bathroom, and I noticed some meconium staining on my pad, and usually, that’s a sign of fetal distress in the baby. It was milder so, it was like, ‘Okay, he is not doing too well, but it is not an emergency at this point,' she shared.
However, upon arriving at the hospital, she learned that the baby was in a breech position and she needed C-section.
