It was for preeclampsia.
<<I just got an update from Teresa, who just got off the phone with Jim Bob. (For those who have watched their show, Teresa is the midwife that taught the childbirth classes and delivered Josh and Anna's baby. We are in the same homeschool group here in NWA.) Baby Girl Duggar was born just before 6:30 PM. Teresa was not sure how to spell her name and didn't want to make an attempt. : ) She weighs just 1lb. 6oz. and is doing as well as expected for a nearly 25 week baby. She is in the NICU at **** and Jim Bob said that she is getting world-class care here. They are just watching, waiting, and praying.
Michelle is still in recovery and Jim Bob has remained there with her. They hope that her condition will start improving over the next couple of days. Right now they have a peace and are so thankful for all who are praying. In addition to praying for Michelle and Baby Girl, please be praying for their other children as well. Many of the older children are on a mission trip to El Salvador right now and do not even know that the baby has been born yet.>>
