Jessa Duggar Seewald is back on the small screen this coming Sunday in Jill & Jessa: Counting On--the show the Duggar family is praying will become the 19 Kids and Counting spinoff. This weekend's episode finds Jessa reflecting on her home birth gone wrong.

A preview for Jill & Jessa: Counting On finds Jessa Duggar in an ambulance, headed for the hospital, following the birth of her and Ben Seewald's baby boy.

“It was just like a bad dream, like, ‘How could this happen?’” Jessa asks in the preview.

In addition to Jessa Duggar Seewald's labor and delivery of baby Spurgeon, fans of the Duggar family will also hear more about Josh Duggar's recent sex scandals.

“Everybody makes their own decisions, and everybody makes their own choices,” Jill Duggar says. “But they’re not the only ones that suffer the consequences.”

Younger sibling Joseph Duggar, 20, is in shock at the revelation that Josh Duggar was not the righteous man he claimed to be.

“I don’t think there’s any way we could have known that my brother was living such a secret life,” Joseph Duggar says.

Josh Duggar sexually molested five underage girls when he was a teenager. Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Seewald admit to being among his victims. The family forgave Josh these transgressions, but TLC didn't. 19 Kids and Counting was cancelled as a result of Josh's actions and the way parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar handled the situation.

This summer, Josh Duggar was outed in another sexual scandal when the Ashley Madison cheater's website hack divulged the young husband and father had two accounts. Shortly thereafter he admitted to cheating on his wife, Anna Duggar, and said he had an addiction to pornography, too.

It will be interesting to learn exactly how much of Josh Duggar's scandal is discussed on Jill & Jessa: Counting On. It has come as a big surprise to many that Anna Duggar will appear on the show.

Between Jessa Duggar Seewald's labor, deliver, and trip to the hospital, and talk of the latest Josh Duggar scandal, there will be plenty of fodder for excitement on Jill & Jessa: Counting On. The first of three episodes airs December 13 at 8 p.m. ET on TLC.
