Placental Insufficiency

Screening and Tests for Placental Insufficiency

As there are usually no symptoms for placental insufficiency, it is imperative that women recent frequent prenatal care and screening for this condition. Tests for placental insufficiency usually include an ultrasound to measure the fetus’s growth (if you have risk factors for placental insufficiency, your doctor may perform more frequent ultrasound tests than he or she would with a normal pregnancy) and a fetal heart rate monitor. In addition, your doctor may ask you to keep a record of your baby’s kicks and movements to ensure that it is developing normally.
