What Causes Calcification Of The Placenta
Am I at higher risk for placental calcification for 2nd pregnancy? My first was born @35.5wk and placenta was almost completely calcified. Non-smoker
Still born at 35.5 weeks. Doctor said it's due to a weak spot in the placenta and placenta calcification. What does this mean?

"A week spot in the placenta" is not meaningful and "placental calcifications" which are not uncommon, are unlikely to cause a stillbirth. Unfortunately, most stillbirths and pregnancy losses are unexplained (even after careful investigations) and the list of real causes is long. ...Read more
