See the Bizarre Way Jessa (Duggar) Seewald Jump-Started Her Labor

When Jessa Seewald felt her first real contractions hit, the mom-to-be didn't want to sit around and wait for her baby to just show up. Instead, she had an interesting, proactive method to kick-start her labor: Speed walking.

In this exclusive first look at Sunday's new episode of Jill & Jessa: Counting On, Jessa, her husband Ben Seewald and a number of her sisters hit the road soon as she feels the first signs of labor -- and her family could barely keep up!

"If you're going to try to have a baby, just do it," Jessa explains. "I mean, don't mosey on down the trail at a snail's pace! Power walk it. Walk the baby out!"
