Last year, a woman I was caring for in labor & delivery almost died.
She was suffering from an embolism characterized by sudden cardiorespiratory collapse and acute hemorrhage. In the simplest terms, she nearly died from an allergic reaction to amniotic micro-substances in her bloodstream that can cause severe bleeding and inability to provide oxygen to the organs in her body.
