The Amniotic Fluid Embolism Foundation, a non-profit organization founded in 2008, quickly united the voices of families, survivors, medical professionals and researchers to call for greater awareness and resources to reduce the threat of amniotic fluid embolism (AFE). Our collective efforts have resulted in an internationally recognized research program on AFE, highly sought after educational programming for healthcare providers, and a worldwide network of support groups and resources for those impacted by an AFE.
We are committed to identifying the cause, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of amniotic fluid embolism and bring our information and resources to healthcare providers and impacted families through our education and support programs. We also strive to be the light guiding those impacted by an AFE through their physical and emotional recovery as they navigate their way forward.
Reducing maternal and infant mortality attributed to amniotic fluid embolism while helping those impacted navigate paths forward.
Amniotic fluid embolism no longer threatens lives and those with lived experiences thrive.
