A 32-year-old female asked:

Does lifting a 30 pound toddler in third trimester increase risk of placenta abruption during pregnancy or delivery?

Abruption ?'s: The cause of placental abruption is more common with pre-natal hypertension and/or trauma much more intense than "lifting a 30 lb toddler". Abruption or partial abruption can occur in labor with pre-existing "placenta previa", so consult with your OB provider for the results of third trimester ultrasound and placental location.
