An Ohio woman, who made headlines a few months ago for posing with 20,000 bees as part of a maternity photo shoot, lost her unborn child after suffering a stillbirth. However, it was not posing with the bees that led to the stillbirth.

The 37-year-old mother of three penned a heartbreaking Facebook post Monday in which she also named her late son, Emersyn Jacob. In her post, Emily Mueller described the immense pain she and her husband felt the moment they discovered the doctors could not find their baby’s heartbeat.

“Seeing your children feel and suffer your pain in front of your eyes. The pain is unbearable. 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,” she wrote. 

"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," Mueller wrote, describing her agony.

“Yesterday evening we had to hand over our precious child and say goodbye to his physical body forever. The deep pit created in your soul is more than anyone can imagine but God has given us a small ray of light that helped me get through this dreadful experience,” she added. 

Mueller also shared a photograph of her son Emersyn with her husband on Facebook.

Mueller, in her post, also wrote about how her late son was put in a cuddle cot — a device meant to keep babies just after their death.

“There is a machine called a cuddle cot which is a cooling device for babies that have passed away. It allows the parents to have more time with the physical body while they mourn their loss. One was donated to our birthing center and Emersyn was the first baby to use it (fortunately). Somehow, down the grapevine, the mother who was able to get this machine donated to the hospital was told it was finally being used. Her daughter, Victoria, was finally serving a purpose for another family, although in a very tragic way,” her post read.

“I remember seeing the donation plaque on the machine and immediately prayed for that family and their experience of losing a child. It is not something you ever wish anyone to experience. However, I received a friend request from someone with the same last name as on that plaque and I immediately connected the two and reached out. I was able to give this mother the reassurance her daughter's life was meaningful and helped us through the worst days of our lives. I am so thankful she had that experience and it was an awakening to me that Emersyn, too, will be serving a purpose for someone else,” she continued.

Mueller also wrote she and her husband have decided to send the placenta for testing as they suspect blood clotting to be the cause of their baby’s death.

“We were torn between keeping the placenta to bury ourselves and sending it for testing. Ultimately, we sent it for testing and decided to have a small chance for an answer but we have been prepared to learn that we will most likely never know. If my intuition serves me right, I have a very strong feeling that this was a blood clotting issue as those traits have been affecting our immediate family for some time. My next of kin have suffered miscarriages due to this disorder so it would make sense we could go through it as well. It may not be confirmed to be so but in my deepest thoughts, I feel it to be true,” she wrote.

Earlier in September, Mueller, a beekeeper and the owner of Mueller Honey Bee and Rescue, posed for a maternity photo shoot with thousands of bees on her belly.

“People think I’m putting my baby at harm. But bees are gentle and I hope my bee belly helps people see that they aren’t as scary as you might think. Not scary, but intense. Sure, I was nervous at first, but then it’s so exciting in the moment. It was absolutely amazing to connect with nature in that way and to have the bees directly on my womb was so spiritual,” she said at the time.
