Ohio Woman Who Posed With Bees In Maternity Shoot Has A Stillbirth
This Ohio mother of three made headlines in August after posing with 20,000 bees on her pregnant belly in a maternity shoot has sadly suffered a stillbirth. “Yesterday evening we had to hand over our precious child and say goodbye to his physical body forever,” Emily Mueller wrote in a Facebook post on Monday, adding that she and her husband, Ryan named their late son Emersyn Jacob.
“Our baby has died. Our baby will never come home with us. This wonderful rainbow baby we were blessed with has now become a storm in our lives. Finding out your baby died is unfathomable. Learning you have to be induced and deliver your deceased child is way beyond that. My heart instantly ached for any woman that has told me she had a stillborn.”
Emily, who has three other children — Cadyn, 10, Madelynn, 3, and Westyn, 1 — said she was preparing for an upcoming event on Thursday and didn’t notice her baby’s lack of movement. “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. I just told myself he was sleeping but as the time passed, I felt uneasy about it.”
She and her husband decided to go to the hospital to check for a heartbeat, and sadly learned that their son had died just days before the due date. Emily, a beekeeper and owner of Mueller Honey Bee and Rescue, first got into beekeeping as a way to cope after suffering several miscarriages.
