A pregnant woman died after she ‘suddenly became unresponsive’ while drinking a cup of coffee.
36-year-old Emily Mitchell from Rhode Island has passed away while expecting her fifth child.
In November, she shared the amazing news with her 107,000 followers on Instagram that they were expecting their fifth child.
A GoFundMe page set up to raise money for the grieving husband and four young children read: “Em was having her morning coffee and toast when she suddenly became unresponsive.
“The doctors are still working on answers for her family.”
Emily and her unborn baby died three days before Christmas.
“Our hearts are broken and her joyful presence will be greatly missed by so many,” a message on the page reads.
“Em made a big impact in so many people’s lives, and this loss is incomprehensible for anyone who knew her. Our friend was a dedicated mom and wife, she had a heart for the Lord, and loved her children so dearly.
“Emily left behind her loving husband Joe, and four beautiful children, Finn, Isla, Edie and Lulu.”
The message continues: “We are heartbroken by her passing and as a community we wish to express our love for her family through this fundraiser. These funds will go towards her children’s education next year, as well as the many costs Joe and the kids will face as they adjust to life without Emily.
“We appreciate everyone’s concerns about her sudden passing, and want to thank you all for the love you’ve expressed in the form of messages, calls and letters. Your words didn’t go unnoticed and her family is very grateful for your support during this devastating time.
“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.”
It adds: “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.”
