Join us Thursday, September 24th, at 7:00pm, for an evening with Stephanie Arnold, author of the new book, 37 Seconds: Dying Revealed Heaven’s Help-A Mother’s Journey.
While pregnant with her second child, Stephanie Arnold had a sudden and overwhelming premonition that she would die during the delivery. Though she tried to tell the medical team and her family what was going to happen, neither the doctors nor her loved ones gave her warnings credence. Then, during the delivery, Stephanie suffered a rare Amniotic Fluid Embolism. She went into cardiac arrest and flat-lined for 37 seconds. She died. The medical team revived her, and she remained unconscious for more than six days.
After months of recovery, Stephanie began to remember details of her experience, details she knew because she had witnessed the entire dramatic event, including her death, from outside her body. In this remarkable true story, Stephanie recounts her harrowing journey and shares her surprising spiritual discoveries: we are not alone and have more loving help than we can imagine surrounding us.
Stephanie Arnold was a producer, creating and directing TV shows, music videos, and documentaries, until she met the love of her life. During the birth of her second child, Stephanie suffered a rare and often fatal condition called an Amniotic Fluid Embolism (AFE). Stephanie currently serves on the board of directors for the AFE Foundation and speaks on patient advocacy to organizations like the American Society of Anesthesiologists. She has been named one of Today’s Chicago Woman’s “100 Women of Inspiration.” Stephanie lives in Chicago with her husband Jonathan and is the loving mother of Adina, Jacob, and stepdaughter Valentina.
