In brief: Fetal demise.
Fetal hemorrhage is rare but potentially lethal.
The mother may not have any symptoms (except painless vaginal bleeding in case of ruptured vasa previa) but the fetus can rapidly exsanguinate and die if this dire complication occurs. Rare intracranial hemorrhage is seen in the fetal life; this can be lethal or neurologically devastating, although mild cases can even go unnoticed.
