Placenta Abruption

Placenta Abruption (PA) is when the placenta separates from the wall of the uterus, either partially or completely, before the baby is delivered. Vaginal bleeding, abdominal or back pain, abnormal or premature contractions may be signs of PA. Risk factors include maternal hypertension, maternal trauma, such as motor vehicle accidents, prolonged rupture of membranes (>24 hours), maternal age (pregnant women who are younger than 20 or older than 35 are at greater risk) and previous abruption. Failure to recognize and treat PA can lead to maternal hemorrhage or brain damage to the baby.
