Sabrina V NDE

Experience Description

In 2003, I had an NDE from a bad hemorrhage due to placental abruption. It happened at my home. An emergency team was called immediately; there were many people who arrived at my home (such as the doctor, paramedics, and fire brigade). I lost consciousness, yet I was hearing, 'We are losing her, we are losing her!' I was watching everything from the ceiling, as if I was floating above them. I don't know how much time this took. Then I felt myself leaving the scene and there was a warm and welcoming light waiting for me and enveloping me. I felt drawn into the tunnel. I was well, but I sensed that if I would go too far, I couldn't come back anymore.
