Pregnant blogger/influencer, Emily Mitchell’s family has revealed that she died of pulmonary
embolism. Mitchell became unresponsive while eating breakfast at her Rhode Island home, just
three days prior to Christmas.
She was around 16-weeks pregnant with her fifth child when she died, and as a result of that her
unborn baby also passed away.
Emily’s husband, Joe, shared an update this week on their GoFundMe page regarding his late wife’s
cause of death, mentioning that the state medical examiners office had confirmed pulmonary
embolism as the cause of her death. Pulmonary embolism a blockage caused by a blood clot in the
pulmonary artery of the lungs.
In the post, Joe, who is now a single parent to his four kids, Finn, Isla, Edie and Lulu, opened up
about the heartbreak and pain caused to the entire family, admitting that it has been challenging to
wrap their heads around the sudden loss of their beloved mother and wife.
