Miranda Klassen is the Executive Director of the Amniotic Fluid Embolism (AFE) Foundation, a non-profit advocacy and research organization she founded in 2008 after nearly losing her life to an amniotic fluid embolism. Miranda assisted in the development and implementation of the Amniotic Fluid Embolism Registry ™ in collaboration with Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. The registry, now the world’s largest database of AFE cases, will allow for future investigations pertaining to the genes and mechanisms associated with AFE. Miranda is a frequent speaker, panelist, and lecturer on amniotic fluid embolism and patient advocacy. She is also a contributing author on research articles and most recently the nationally approved safety bundle Patient, Family, and Staff Support after a Severe Maternal Event.
