Ms. Arnold, a television producer, suffered a rare but often fatal condition called an amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) during the birth of her second child. She died on the operating table. Her multi-award-winning, best-selling book on her experience, 37 Seconds, tells her story. She serves on the board of directors for the AFE Foundation, speaks on patient advocacy and served as the face for the legislative campaign When Seconds Count (ASA) and also for the mother’s day LifeSource program, helping to educate about blood donation. In addition she raises money for research and education into the leading cause of maternal death in the world. She will speak with us about her experiences before – during – and after death.
