Guide For Women Still Hospitalized
If you have a loved one that has recently experienced AFE we are here to help at every step of the way.
Amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) strikes unexpectedly and can have a tremendous impact on everyone involved. Family members facing a medical crisis are often emotionally overwhelmed and unable to use traditional coping skills and problem solving.
The following information is intended to assist you during the time immediately following AFE. This guide is for patients still hospitalized and has been compiled by speaking with families who have experienced AFE and is what they found most helpful. It is not intended as medical or legal advice and it is always recommended you seek professional guidance with any questions as they relate to your specific situation or condition.
