Instagram Influencer Emily Mitchell Dies at 36 While Pregnant with Fifth Child
Emily Mitchell, an Instagram influencer and parenting blogger, passed away in late December at the young age of 36 while pregnant with her fifth child.
A GoFundMe page explained, “Em was having her morning coffee and toast when she suddenly became unresponsive. Despite the prompt attention of her children, husband, father and other medical personnel, all valiant efforts to resuscitate were unsuccessful. She went home to be with the Lord. The doctors are still working on answers for her family. We will update everyone with answers when we get them.”
Just a few weeks ago, Emily posted, “This will be my FIFTH C-Section. 🤯 However your baby gets here, just know YOUR EXPERIENCE is valid and worthy. YOU are no less a mother if you needed emergency medical intervention, had a planned c-section, or an epidural. You aren’t a ‘better’ mother if you had a home birth or an unmedicated vaginal birth. And if you grew your brood through adoption or surrogacy or family blending? Those are YOUR babies and YOU SIT PROUDLY at the table of motherhood.”
She is survived by her husband Joseph Mitchell and their four children Finn, Isla, Eden and Luna.
Our thoughts are with Emily‘s family and loved ones.
