I have two giant risk factors for amniotic fluid embolism

Customer Question

I have two giant risk factors for amniotic fluid embolism which are that I'm pregnant with a male and I have a prior drug allergy history. I'm terrified of giving birth months away because of knowing this. Do these things mean that will happen. Have patients given birth successfully with these two risk factors? I'm twenty five and I don't know if age helps but any advice would be appreciated.

Those not risk factors at all from a practical perspective. Amniotic fluid embolism is a rare and unpredicatable event. Theres nothing at all to suspect it in a young woman.
