Ben’s wife already experienced the loss of a child. You might recall, after rumors arose that she was pregnant, the news arrived that she suffered a miscarriage. That came in 2020. But she later announced another pregnancy with a rainbow baby in 2021. In the summer of that year, they welcomed little Fern into their home.

Counting On fans heard the gender of Fern when Jessa Seewald went on her YouTube. But this time, she delivered the miscarriage news on the same platform.  Nowadays, they raise Spurgeon, Henry, Ivy, and Fern. And, another sibling was on the way in 2023.

Just a few hours later, she uploaded a video titled, “Heartbreak Over The Holidays.” In it, the Counting On star talked about morning sickness. Additionally, she showed the family having some fun with an early Christmas present for Ivy. Speaking fast, and almost in a monotone, she related various things that they did as a family. At the 9:04 mark of the video, she revealed scans of a baby. She also talked about how “All seemed to be going well until, just a few days before Christmas.”  

No Fetal Heart Rate

No FHR means that the baby had died inside her body. So, she explained that she had to have a D&C. Fans liked that Jess gave a detailed and raw account of losing a baby. In the comments section, Paula Strain said, “As someone who’s suffered from infertility for 20+ years, never able to have children…. I have to say this is probably the most meaningful and moving sharing I’ve seen. My heart breaks for you and my prayers are with you. Thank you for sharing your heart and showing how real and raw this is.”

Another follower, Saved By Jesus said, “Oh Jessa, I am so sorry to hear this!! This made me cry. My heart is hurting for you and your family!! Thank you for sharing your heart about this !! I am sure God will use this to help others in many ways!!! I am praying for all of you 🙏!!”
