Placenta abruption explained (simply)

Some one recently asked me to explain what a placenta abruption was. I shared the link to something I had recently published here on the subject ( felt that there must be an easier way to explain it.

The picture below represents the placenta. the ‘bunches of grapes’ are where the placenta attaches to the mother’s womb (the container in the pictire) and the lines from the grapes join together to form the umbilical cord (where the arrow is).

A placenta abruption is where some or all of ‘the grapes’ become detached from the ‘container’. if only some of ‘the grapes’ become detached then it is a partial placenta abruption.  If all of ‘the grapes’ become detached then it is a full placenta abrupttion.

The link above gives more detail of a placenta abruption, some of the causes and what to look out for.
