36 years old Parenting blogger and Instagram celebrity Emily Mitchell, who is expectant of a baby, passed away unawares just before the Christmas festivity.
According to a fundraising page that was set up for her family, the creator of “The Hidden Way” blog who is also an aboriginal of Rhode Island, departed unexpectedly while expecting her 5th child, three days before Christmas. Emily Mitchell, whose maiden name is Giancaspro, is survived by her husband Joseph Mitchell and their four children: Finn, Isla, Eden and Luna.
The fundraising page published that Emily was sipping on her morning coffee, likewise munching on toast, and all of a sudden, she was not responding anymore.
“Em was having her morning coffee and toast when she suddenly became unresponsive,” the fundraising page announced. “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.”
According to her obituary published online, Emily was 16 weeks pregnant of a baby boy called Joey before her demise.
“This will be my FIFTH C-Section.” she wrote. “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 added, “My plan was never to have five c-sections. But you can be sure I’m darn thankful for them. Even if I did grieve with my first at missing out on what the ‘real motherhood experience’ was supposed to be. How I feel now? It doesn’t matter how they get here. It only matters THAT THEY GET HERE. And are so deeply LOVED.”
