A few months ago, Josiah and Lauren Duggar shared that they had lost a baby due to miscarriage. They were very open and told fans how hard this was on them. They have been taking their time to grieve and have had the support of their friends, family, and fans.
Mother’s Day must have been a difficult day for Lauren, especially with so many nieces and nephews. The Duggar family is filled with children. Several of her sisters-in-law are expecting babies soon as well. Around the time of the miscarriage, she said, “Sometimes it’s very hard, especially when you see your sisters and they have babies. It’s hard to praise the Lord for something like that.”
Josiah shared a post on the couple’s joint account. The post features a picture of the couple together. In the post, he said, “To my dear Lauren… Happy 1st Mother’s Day! I have seen you love, protect, and how much you have given without getting anything in return. I wish our sweet baby could’ve seen just how wonderful a mother you are.”

To my dear Lauren… Happy 1st Mother’s Day! I have seen you love, protect, and how much you have given without getting anything in return. I wish our sweet baby could’ve seen just how wonderful a mother you are. Not all mothers arms get to hold their little one, or get to hear their baby’s laughs and cries. You may have missed out on these things since our baby was called home to be with Jesus, but you ARE a mother. I love you Lauren! -Si #mothersday #happymothersday #mamatoanangelbaby
He continues this heartfelt message, saying, “Not all mothers arms get to hold their little one, or get to hear their baby’s laughs and cries. You may have missed out on these things since our baby was called home to be with Jesus, but you ARE a mother. I love you Lauren! -Si”
In the comments, fans shared their Mother’s Day wishes for Lauren. Fans say they are praying for Josiah and Lauren to be able to have a child someday. The fans also appreciate how Lauren is being recognized and honored as a mother. This isn’t always the case and it definitely seems important to her.
Lauren Duggar shares about the miscarriage
Josiah and Lauren first shared about the miscarriage in February. During this time, they were very open about what was happening. It must have been difficult for them to open up about the miscarriage, but they realized how important it was to share.
After the initial post about the miscarriage, Lauren and Josiah posted another message and said, “I know by y’all sharing your stories it has not only helped me, but many other women who have gone through the same trials.” Though this was a sad time for the couple, they received a lot of support from their followers. The followers’ comments about their own experiences helped them to feel less alone.
It looks like the Duggar family members are very respectful and understanding about Lauren and Josiah’s loss. Jessa, Josiah’s sister, posted a message about how she and Lauren shared the same exact due date. She wrote about how hard this was on Josiah and Lauren, along with the rest of the family.
As of right now, Josiah and Lauren haven’t shared a pregnancy announcement. They are likely still grieving and are waiting until they’re ready to grow their family.
