In brief: Here are my thoughts
Placental infarcts, if they occur in an ongoing pregnancy, would lead me to have concern for the well being of the fetus.
So addressing the underlying disease that caused the infarcts is important. In addition testing of the fetus for its well being should occur. I might also treat the mom so that the fetus received the best placental function possible, examples: rest, hydration & possibly oxygen.
