In a time when our culture is so knowledgeable about medicine, it is tragic that we are losing mothers and/or babies during childbirth. Before our own next door neighbor experienced her AFE, we had never heard of this, had never known anyone else who had suffered from it. We are so grateful she was surrounded by an excellent team of physicians, nurses, and technicians, and that she and her precious son survived. Though she has had years of dealing with the sequelae of her experience, she was greatly motivated to reach out to others who had similar experiences or who had lost a loved one due to AFE. To read the stories of these mothers or grieving family members is so heart wrenching. For fathers to be left alone to raise their children, to have the mother survive but suffer months or years of physical difficulties and neurological damage, or to lose your daughter or sister is life shattering. It is clear that this support network has already been of great help to so many; the fund-raising events; the forums that bring people together to share their experiences, to be comforted and grow in strength and knowledge; all of these efforts mean so much to the victims and their families. In addition, the organization is reaching out to the medical community to coordinate research and develop greater understanding as to why this happens and how to prevent it in the future, to save lives, save families. We are so grateful our neighbor and her son survived. We are hoping that the knowledge gained and discoveries revealed through the efforts of this organization will help to prevent this tragedy from happening and strengthen the families who have suffered.
