Despite positive assurances last week, Michelle Duggar delivered her 19th baby on Thursday, December 10th. Daughter Josie Brooklyn, who wasn’t supposed to arrive until March 18th, is doing well: PEOPLE reported that the smallest Duggar (she weighed only 1 pound, 6 ounces at her birth) is in stable condition in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit.
Duggar was admitted to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences for what turned out to be gallbladder pain earlier this month, and doctors soon discovered that she was suffering from preeclampsia. The condition, which affects 5-8 percent of all pregnancies, is characterized by rising blood pressure. Though rare, severe cases can result in death for both mother and child. Doctors determined that Duggar’s case warranted an emergency C-section to protect the health of both Duggar and her baby.
Our thoughts are with little Josie and the entire Duggar family.
