S.1 E.2 Cathy Garrett: Amniotic Fluid Embolism & Stroke Survivor

**Trigger Warning** Today’s episode describes some very hard to hear situations. We do not share this information to scare people. We share in hopes to bring awareness to an almost always catastrophic and very rare complication.  

In today’s episode, you’ll hear about the birth of my second daughter, Chloe Anne. During labor we suffered an amniotic fluid embolism which changed the course of my life. Join me as we discuss the details of my daughter’s first moments of life, my hospitalization, and in-patient rehab.
