What are the odds of the baby surviving in a 90% placental abruption?

What are the odds of the baby surviving in a 90% placental abruption?

It depends: Placental abruption is a condition in which the placenta peels away from the inner wall of the uterus prior to the baby's delivery. When this happens, the baby (and mother) can suffer from excessive blood loss. Additionally, the baby loses its ability to get oxygen. The baby's survival depends on how quickly he can be delivered after abruption occurs. ...Read more

I have pots, and lost my baby to placental abruption (which they think caused the pots) should I not try again? Better to adopt? Once pots gets better

I have pots, and lost my baby to placental abruption (which they think caused the pots) should I not try again? Better to adopt? Once pots gets better

POT[t]S: Stands for postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and is caused by abnormal activity of the autonomic (automatic) nervous system (ans). I think that the "abruptio" and the pots are from a common cause---- compromised body chemistrry, in the control mechanisms of the ANS and the normal function of pregnancy. My guess is that it is due to lousy diet that provides the energy for cellularfunction. ...Read more

I lost a baby 2yrs ago at 39wks due to placental abruption now i'm scared to have a baby again even though they plan to take it at 36wk afe is my fear?

High risk pregnancy: Sorry for your loss, but i doubt if anyone could predict the possibility of having afe with your future delivery. I would recommend to schedule your next delivery in the big tertiary center with high acuity for ob/gyn and level iii-iv neonatal medicine intensive care. And follow up your current pregnancy with fetal-maternal medicine specialist. ...Read more

Yes: You should sit down with your obgyn and talk about what if any risk factors you had for your placental abruption. Many women have a horrible pregnancy outcome in one pregnancy but go on to have successful pregnancies after. Good luck! ...Read more

Should i be worried about amniotic fluid embolism with my pregnancy my first pregnancy i lost my baby to placental abruption at 39wks?

Don't think so: I don't think anybody can predict this rare complication. Sorry for your loss. The only suggestion i can give with your next pregnancy: try to get your future delivery done at the tertiary care facility. And keep on positive thinking, otherwise your future pregnancy would be a nightmare, filled with anxiety. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with minor placental abruption at 19 weeks pregnant. I am now 30 weeks and continue to spot daily. Now the spotting has gotten heavy enough to need a panty liner. Is there anything I can do to protect myself and my baby?

I was diagnosed with minor placental abruption at 19 weeks pregnant. I am now 30 weeks and continue to spot daily. Now the spotting has gotten heavy enough to need a panty liner. Is there anything I can do to protect myself and my baby?

Patience.: Avoid all nsaids (aspirin, motrin, aleve, (naproxen) advil), do not exercise, avoid intercourse and heavy lifting, keep all your appointments, consider modified bedrest (although strict bedrest has not been conclusively proven to help it is frequently recommended). Do not travel out of town and remain within 15 minutes from your maternity hospital at all times. Consider nightly vaginal progesterone. ...Read more

Take 1 day at a time: Once the placenta peels away from the wall of the uterus, it cannot adhere again. Plus the condition that led to the abruption in the first place might still be present. Therefore, in most cases the best one can do is follow physician instructions, accept corticosteroids if offered to develop the fetal lungs and see each day as one more day the baby continues to stay inside the uterine environment. ...Read more

Nightly progesterone: Nightly Progesterone per vaginal applicator could help prolong your pregnancy to 32-34 weeks or beyond. Bedrest is generally recommended without good scientific data and could increase your risk for clots in your pelvis or legs. Avoid all exercise and keep all your appointments. Do not travel out of town, remain within 15 minute radius from your (preferably large) maternity hospital at all times. ...Read more
