I have the same issue after updating gatsby-source-contentful to the latest version. It looks like the embedded resources don’t have the fileds prop anymore. I found that the fields are now flattered into the target object itself.

I don’t know the reason of this breaking change, maybe I am doing something wrong, but I have the feeling that the documentation about the new version of gatsby-source-contentful is very unclear.

Have you gone through the change log when upgrading to the new major version? This entry could be of interest to you.

For documentation on renderRichText() please see documentation on rich-text-react-renderer which is also applicable to gatsby-source-contentful/rich-text as stated in this Contentful / Gatsby guide or in the above change-log entry code example.
