Josiah and Lauren Duggar's journey to parenthood has been full of difficult, emotional, and beautiful moments. And in a new Counting On special, Lauren Duggar opens up about giving birth to their daughter, Bella Milagro, and viewers are given a behind-scenes-peek into what looked like an exhausting two days of labor.
Lauren's birth special on TLC's website documents Bella's "long and difficult" arrival, but Counting On fans are also shown the moment when they finally get to meet their baby girl. It's revealed in the special that Lauren had to have not one, but two epidurals administered to her when the first one wasn't working. Lauren's right leg began to feel heavy after her first epidural and her blood pressure dropped. A few hours later, Lauren's doctor decided to order a second epidural. The Counting On star was ultimately given medication to help during labor.
Josiah and Lauren's birth special was certainly dramatic, but ultimately ended with their smiling baby girl. Beyond Lauren's epidurals, here are a few more interesting facts that were revealed in the special.
