What is the treatment for placenta infarction?

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.

I might also treat the mom so that the fetus received the best placental function possible, examples: rest, hydration & possibly oxygen.
