A woman who went viral on Facebook after posting a maternity photo with a swarm of bees, announced she lost her son on Saturday.

Emily Mueller said her and her husband Ryan lost their son, who they named Emersyn Jacob, after he was delivered stillborn.

Emily shared the devastating news with her friends and family on Facebook:

The Mueller family went viral in August, after Emily hired Kendrah Damis to do her maternity shoot with 20,000 bees.

To get all the bees to swarm towards her, she held the queen bee in a container in her hand on her tummy.

Mueller said in a post on Facebook that she was getting prepared for an upcoming event last week, and that she was so busy she didn't pay attention to her baby's movement.

"Who truly does when you've been this far along 3 times before and everything has been completely normal. 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."

By the next morning she was feeling uneasy by the whole thing and went to her midwife's office, where they checked the babies heartbeat.

"They asked for them to retrieve the doctor on call. I remember his presence, his walk, the way he grabbed the gel from the nurse's hand, the ultrasound. Every detail of that moment is forever sketched into my mind and I cannot stop replaying it. Dr. Sutter sat on my right side looking at the screen and turned to me and said, "Your baby has passed."

She thanked the staff at Sufficient Grace Ministries. The family was able to get foot prints on keepsake items, along with photos and other memories.

Emily believes her son died due to blood clotting issues, that run in her family. Future test could clarify this.

She thanked everyone from around the country who prayed for her and her family, and the meals that showed up on her door step.
