A student midwife, Jill had set two due dates for herself – March 24 and April 5. "I have told myself, 'First-time moms often go a week and a half over, so don't get discouraged,' " she told PEOPLE one day prior to Israel's first due date, adding that she has told herself that from the beginning. "When everyone else is asking you, 'When are you going to have that baby?' The baby will come when the baby comes."
