Jill Dillard (nee Duggar) is already talking about baby number two!
The delivery of her son, Israel David, on April 6 may not have gone according to plan — but the 19 Kids and Counting Star is already prepared for a vaginal birth for her next child.
After a 70-hour delivery, the reality star was advised to undergo a C-section despite her wishes for a natural birth. Ouch!
Her husband, Derick Dillard shared in an interview:
"She had labored for so long. There's no shame in that, there's no shame in not progressing, there's no shame in getting a C-section."

And we agree. After 70-hours you should get a c-section or a medal!
But at least Derick was there to keep his wife calm throughout the intense delivery. He stated:
"I was nervous. I didn't want to show that or make her more fearful."
Husband of the year? We think so.
However, after such an intense labor, you'd think the new mom would avoid a natural birth at all costs. But the 23-year-old is certain that the next child will go according to plan. She stated in her interview:
"We told the doctor, ‘Stitch me up really well. The doctor told me he has no doubt I'll be able to have a vaginal delivery the next time."
According to the young couple, the intensive birth brought the pair closer than ever. Jill apparently hasn't needed to change a single diaper since coming home. AH-Mazing!
We're excited to see the birth in real time when it airs on TLC May 5, 2015. But for now, we are just happy that mom and baby are happy and healthy.
