Instagram influencer, Emily Mitchell recently died at the age of 36 while expecting her fifth child.

The creator of The Hidden Way blog died unexpectedly three days before Christmas, according to a fundraising page created for the family. She was 16 weeks pregnant with her son, who she planned to name Joey. Mitchell and her unborn son were both pronounced dead at Westerly Hospital in Rhode Island.

On the morning of December 22, Mitchell was “having her morning coffee and toast when she suddenly became unresponsive,” wrote the fundraising page.

“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. We will update everyone with inserts when we get them,” said a message on the site.

Mitchell is survived by her husband Joseph Mitchell and their four children – Finn, Isla, Eden and Luna.

Her Instagram blog, The Hidden Way, Mitchell often shared photos of her children, along with her homeschooling efforts and discussions about parenting.
