Placental Abruption

Prevention of Placental Abruption

While the causes of placental abruption are not entirely known, a few, simple steps may help expectant mothers in preventing a placental peel. The National Institutes of Health, for instance, recommends that pregnant women avoid drinking, smoking and recreational drug use during pregnancy, and receive regular and early prenatal care. In addition, mothers who recognize and, with their doctors, manage conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure will go a long way toward the prevention of placental abruption.
