The Seewalds still have yet to decide what they will call their little boy, telling the news outlet that they want to choose a name with meaning that will suit their son for the rest of his life.
The article includes exclusive photos of the family of three, as well as the details of Jessa's long labor that made her come close to requesting a transfer to the hospital and an epidural.
But the first-time mom powered through and successfully delivered Baby Seewald at home just before 7:00pm on Thursday. Jessa and Ben were the only ones who knew that their child was a boy, so you can imagine the excitement from both the Duggar and Seewald families when they found out the gender of the newest addition.
Immediately following the birth, the midwife became concerned about the amount of blood Jessa was losing, so Michelle called 911, and the new mom was taken to the emergency room for a blood transfusion. She had to leave her son for a short time, but Baby Seewald was soon brought to the hospital to join his mother.
Mom and baby are healthy, and the Seewalds are settling into life with a newborn. For more info, check out this week's issue of PEOPLE.
