In brief: Bleeding or None
Placental abruption is when the placenta detaches from the uterine wall before the baby is born.
This happens in only 1% of pregnancies. Patients may or may not have vaginal bleeding. It can be dangerous as the baby may not get the same amount of oxygen and nutrients if the abruption is large. Abruption has been linked to maternal high blood pressure, Cocaine use, abdominal trauma and smoking.
