Amniotic fluid embolism is a rare, yet catastrophic event. In the United States it occurs in 1 per 20,000 to 30,000 births. With an 86% maternal mortality rate, amniotic fluid embolism is responsible for 10-15% of all maternal deaths. This article presents a case study of a CNM's experience with a maternal and fetal death resulting from an amniotic fluid embolism. Pathogenesis and appropriate management are also presented.
