|I have very high blood pressure. I’ve heard this can
cause problems with my placenta?
Since high blood pressure is one of the reasons that your
placenta can pull away from the uterus, your doctor will
monitor your condition very closely. Thus you will be asked
to look out for any sign of bleeding, uterine tenderness
or cramping. If separation (known as abruption placenta)
occurs you will require medical intervention and the situation
will be considered an emergency. However the prognosis,
with medical care, is excellent for both you and your baby.
