Breakdown of structu
The fetus within the intact fetal membranes is no longer nourished by the placenta
( no heart
pushing blood to & fro) so the structures begin to break down.
They may pass as a miscarriage or need to be coaxed out by an induction or manual removal.Over time the tissue can attain a bag of soup consistency.Retained tissue can cause an infection that may kill mom ( as i saw once in training).
