In a heartbreaking Facebook post, 31-year-old Emily Mueller, whose maternity shoot went viral after her photos with bees surfaced, disclosed that her baby died in the womb over the weekend.
According to her she first suspected there was a problem when she stopped feeling the baby kicking, which was confirmed the moment she gave birth surrounded by caring nurses and doctors. ‘So many people awaited the arrival of our sweet famous baby who was the star of our wonderful bee maternity photo shoot. Jesus decided he needed his own beekeeper and took our precious son, Emersyn Jacob, back up to Heaven with him. ‘Our hearts are deeply saddened and broken more than we could have ever imagined. All we truly want are prayers for our family during this difficult time as they have been allowing us to move forward and heal’ she wrote.
The mother of three who said she was preparing for an upcoming event on Thursday, revealed she noticed her baby’s lack of movement, and decided to go to the hospital to check things out/hear a heartbeat with her husband, but were sadly told the devastating news that their son had died just days before the due date. ‘By evening I began to realize I had not felt baby move much and had contractions that felt different than any I have had before,’ she wrote. ‘I just told myself he was sleeping but as the time passed, I felt uneasy about it.’
