Jim Bob and Josh are keeping up with their strict workouts with their tough-as-nails personal trainer, and Jill and Jana deliver a baby for the first time during their midwifery apprenticeship! Read on for the full ’19 Kids & Counting’ recap.
Jill and Jana Duggar are really taking to their midwifery apprenticeship seriously, and have learned so much from their hands-on experience — they are finally called to help deliver the baby for their client Heather!
Jana & Jill Help Deliver A Baby
Jana and Jill get calls that Heather went into full labor, and they are needed right away to help deliver their baby. Although Heather is wanting a natural delivery without medicine, her pain reaches a level 10 right as she is dilated and about to welcome the baby. Luckily her husband Alden remains cool, calm and collected, and they deliver a healthy baby girl!
Despite all of the screams and palpabale agony from delivery, the Duggar girls are not discouraged from continuing to study midwifery — which is amazing, because someone has to do it!
Josh & Jim Bob Train With A Personal Trainer
Meanwhile, Josh and Jim Bob Duggar are continuing with their workout routine in an effort to get fit and drop some pounds. They have been logging some serious hours with their personal trainer Steve Conley, who is a former NFL player and doesn’t mess around. He pushes them to their fullest, even though they are both incredibly out of shape.
Josh even admits he has poor form and his body doesn’t know how to be athletic most of the time, and Jim Bob says his favorite part of the workouts is sitting in between sets! But they keep working hard, and hopefully will only improve.
Duggar Boys Plant A Greenhouse
As the Duggar boys (with help from the girls) built a greenhouse to grow some plants and fresh produce, Michelle Duggar incorporated the greenhouse and growing seeds into their homeschooling and daily bible lesson. The kids think it’s fun to take what they’ve learned in the classroom and incorporate it in the real world — and they are having a blast growing their own plants! Hopefully, the fresh produce will help their family with their new diet.
Jessa & Jinger Volunteer At A Coffe Shop
Jessa and Jinger decide to volunteer at a local coffee shop called Mama Carmen’s Cafe, in order to raise money to donate to an orphanage in Guatamala. Although the girls are stoked to volunteer for a good cause, they have to get to work at 5:30 a.m. — not their cup of Joe!
While volunteering, the girls learn so much more about being a barista than they thought — they learn to make all kinds of coffee drinks, smoothies, teas and how to use the cash register. The manager even said their friendly personality and manners makes them appealing to customers and has helped them earn business!
It’s fun for them too — Jinger loves coffee and gets the shakes from so much caffeinne, and cute boys come in to flirt with them. But Jim Bob warns that any boys who want to talk to his girls must come through him first!
Finally, the whole Duggar clan comes in and orders all at once, and the girls can actually handle all of their drinks — so many at one time! At the end, they count up how much money they’ve raised, and it’s a grand total of $1,010.41 for charity.
Looks like the Duggar family loves giving back! What did YOU think of tonight’s episode, HollyMoms? Do you think the Duggar ladies are good little workers? Let us know in the comments below!
