What happens to the placenta in delivery?

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.

Placenta come out before the baby is born?

This condition is called Placenta Previa. With placenta previa, the placenta grows on the lower part of the uterus partially or totally covering the opening of the cervix. The placenta should form at the top of the uterus, above the baby. With a normal pregnancy, the baby would be born first, then the placenta. With placenta previa, the placenta would be delivered first. Women with placenta previa require a c-section because as soon as the umbilical cord comes into contact with oxygen, the baby will automatically breathe with his lungs. Delivering the placenta first puts the baby at risk of suffocation in the womb.


Placenta remaining in uterus after birth?

This is called retained placenta. This is placenta or membranes that are left behind during the 3rd stage of delivery, which is the part where the placenta is delivered. If the placenta is not removed, the woman could possibly bleed to death. There are three main causes of retained placenta:• 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 wallThe placenta could also have a hard time delivering if the woman has a full bladder. http://www.babycentre.co.uk/pregnancy/labourandbirth/labourcomplications/retainedplacenta/
