The placenta is inside the uterus feeding the fetus. No you can not pop it. If you mean the uterus it can only be popped by a doctor.

The uterus is where the fetus develops and the placenta connects the uterus to the fetus.

The placenta will be attached to the uterus, but it is not part of it. The uterus is a muscle and is part of basic female human anatomy. The placenta is an organ which is formed after conception.

The placenta can be located anywhere in the uterus.

During delivery, both the baby and placenta are delivered. The contractions of the uterus continue until the placenta has exited as well. If the placenta was not delivered, the blood vessels would continue to bleed, causing the woman to lose blood. Retained placenta is placenta or membranes left behind in the uterus during the 3rd stage of labor, which is the part of labor when you deliver the placenta and membranes. 3 causes for retained placenta are: • uterine atony - this means that the uterus stops contracting or doesn't contract enough for the placenta to separate from the wall of the uterus • trapped placenta - the placenta comes away from the uterus successfully but becomes trapped behind a closed cervix • placenta accreta - an area of the placenta remains attached because it is deeply embedded into the uterus wall The placenta could also have a hard time being delivered if the woman has a full bladder.
