If you are looking for a good book to read, 37 Seconds is a page turner. My friend Stephanie Arnold wrote it. It’s her real life experience.
She’s on Twitter @stepharnold37 and her website is here. Before becoming a Mom, Stephanie was an spent 27 years in the television industry, working in local news, directing and producing music videos, infomercials, educational documentaries, syndicated and network shows. She is an Emmy nominated, Telly award winner and Premio lo Nuestro nominated producer.
She met her husband and they had a baby right away. In 2013, during her second pregnancy she had a premonition that she would die during delivery. No one believed her. One medical person ordered extra units of blood, “just in case”.
During delivery, she had a rare Amniotic Fluid Embolism (AFE). She went into cardiac arrest and flat lined for 37 seconds. She was gone. She died. The docs infused the extra blood and she came back-but she was unconscious for more than 6 days.
After months of recovery, Stephanie began to remember details of her experience. She knew the details because she had witnessed everything, including her death, from outside her body—beside other spirits that were with her. In the book, she talks about her story. We are not alone and have more loving help than we can imagine surrounding us.
We all go through tough times and it’s important to remember there are people around us, even when we feel alone.
