Jill Duggar Is Going to Be Delivering Lots of Babies (PHOTO)

As 19 Kids and Counting fans know, Jill Duggar (now Dillard) has been passionate about midwifery for quite some time, and now she's putting her skills and experience to use in a professional capacity, according to a recent announcement made by Jill and husband Derick on their family's blog.


“As of Wednesday, Sept. 16, and after the seven-hour comprehensive exam for certified professional midwives, she is now ‘Jill Dillard, CPM,’” wrote Derick on dillardfamily.com.

“I am so proud of her for her diligence, perseverance, and hard work to see this long road through to its end and reaching her goal of becoming a CPM.”

So are we!! Congrats, Jill! Every move this girl and her little family makes in a new and positive direction is just so inspiring. After everything she's been through (first as her brother Josh's victim and then as the focus of an abundance of public scrutiny), she deserves to really be proud of her accomplishments. Just check out how happy Jill looks posing next to a congratulatory poster with Derick and baby son Israel:

More from The Stir: Jill Duggar & Derick Dillard's Drastic Move Might Be the Best Thing for Their Family 

I have no doubt Jill is going to make an amazing midwife. And something else, too: a working mom! That's pretty significant for a woman who's coming from a family where women are expected to be wives and mothers (and nothing else). Like I said, every move Jill makes in a new direction is an inspiring one. No one should feel defined or held back by their past!
