Amniotic Fluid Embolism (Anaphylactic Syndrome of Pregnancy)

Amniotic Fluid Embolism (Anaphylactic Syndrome of Pregnancy), a perilous and potentially life-threatening complication, emerges during childbirth or in the immediate postpartum period. Diagnosing Amniotic Fluid Embolism proves to be challenging due to its symptomatology resembling that of other grave childbirth-related complications.

The precise etiology of AFE remains obscure, with this condition being exceptionally rare.

Some factors that elevate your risk include:

  1. The use of labor induction medications or procedures.
  2. Opting for a C-section delivery.
