Sponsored content on Instagram seems to be the most popular way for the Duggar women to make some extra cash. According to In Touch, Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard frequently post specific content about restaurants or share photos of their children holding up kids’ books. However, In Touch notes that they don’t always add the “#ad” identifier, so it’s unclear whether they’re getting paid to post or if they’re just thanking the brand for free stuff.
This isn’t all Jill does. According to Radar Online, Jill launched her own midwife company in 2018 called Labor Sit. She even helped her sister Joy-Anna Duggar while she was in labor with her son Gideon in 2018, according to Inquisitr. However, there’s some skepticism about Jill’s certifications. Per Radar Online, Jill has a certified professional midwife (CPM) competency certificate.
According to People, “CPMs are not required to hold a nursing or other credential and are not authorized to prescribe medication, but require knowledge and experience of out-of-hospital settings.” The site also adds that regulations for CPMs vary state by state.
For women who aren’t “supposed” to work, the Duggar women certainly seem busy, and they’re definitely earning at least some cash.
