"I want to see what that feels like," she added. "I’m not going to skip over it. I want to really be present, as I meet this … new person in our family."
Chelsea Clinton and her husband, investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, are expecting their first child this fall. They married in 2010.
Hillary Clinton said she would decide later this year on whether she would seek to become the Democratic nominee for president in 2016.
Her PBS interview with Rose will air in two parts, on Thursday and Friday. Clinton recently published her memoir, "Hard Choices."
Clinton said that the presidency "has only gotten harder," based on what she has seen from her years as first lady and from working for the Obama administration.
"The job has gotten even bigger and more difficult," she told Rose. "I understand how the job is done, and I understand what has to be prioritized.
"I just have to decide or not that’s what I want to do at this point in my life. … It’s a very personal choice."
