How Can A Woman Know If She Might Be Dealing With Placental Abruption?

Below are some of the signs and symptoms [1] associated with placental abruption:


Sudden Abdominal Pain


Vaginal Tenderness


Back Pain


Heavy Bleeding


Low Blood Pressure


Longer Than Normal Uterine Contractions


Fetal Distress – this can be the result of placental abruption due to the mother’s loss of blood. If the baby’s blood supply becomes compromised, the concern becomes fetal hypoxia. During delivery, the electronic fetal heart monitor can provide an alert to the doctors if the baby is no longer handling the vaginal delivery properly. Due to the threat of hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, the doctor must be set to conduct an emergency C-section to prevent an injury to the baby and the mother.
