Jessa Duggar Opens Up About the Realities of Being a New Mom (VIDEO)

Jessa Duggar SeewaldWhen you become a parent, there's something that clicks. The pieces don't all come together in some perfect way, but you start to pay attention to life lessons that unfold before your eyes. Now that she's a new mom, Jessa (Duggar) Seewald has so much to share -- including advice, and all of the best moments thus far.


"Just take it in."

In a digital exclusive for her TLC reality show Jill & Jessa: Counting On, the 23-year-old wife and mom gushed about motherhood, and how exciting it is to watch her 1-month-old son Spurgeon grow. Jessa also looks forward to the day when she can have a conversation with her little man, as he makes tons of facial gestures that almost imply he's in deep thought.

One area that Jessa Seewald doesn't shy away from is the hardships that come with the mommy territory. As we'll see on the show, one of the hardest parts about becoming a mom for Jess was labor (it's no secret she had a lengthy home birth with complications) -- oh, and those sleepless nights.

I think it's great for new moms to share their journey. You never know what someone else is going through in silence or behind closed doors. Heaven knows I enjoy (to an extent ... haha, kidding) hearing from my fellow mom friends.

Who knows, maybe the advice and experiences we share can be the beacon of light another mom needs at the moment.
