Hi - I am hoping that I can get some information on this. My sister just found out that her placenta has detached a little bit. She is 13 weeks pregnant. All the doctor told her is that it needs to reattach itself quickly or it will continue to detach and she will miscarry. They seemed very surprised that she hasnt been bleeding at all.

So - any information would be greatly appreciated...... how does a placenta reattach, should she be on bedrest, is there anything that the doctor can/should be doing?

Thanks girls!!

Forever in our hearts

Although I have not done extensive searching on this issue, I do have chronic hypertension with a history of preecmplasia and one of the things that can happen is that the placenta detaches prematurely so i have done searching in the past to check what the signs and symptoms are and what outlook would be if this would happen.

For what i understand if that happens, it doesnt 'fix' itself but that doesnt mean baby cannot go to term and be delivered healthy. It depends on the severity of the detachment and if you sister has not bleed with it, probably just a minor detachment. The big concern is just how bad the detachment is, where it is and how much bleeding is going on (dont want to hemorrhage). I believe i read that they will do C-section to help control any possible hemorrhaging.

The key for your sister is to make sure she is seeing a High Risk OB and/or a Fetal Meternal Specialist to keep herself and the baby monitored with frequenet ultrasounds to keep on top of the detachment.

Let us know how she does in the months to come, something that is always on my mind with my problems!
