Treatment of the retained placenta

Retained placenta is treated by first attempting to remove the placenta manually. Medications are provided to relax the uterus and make it contract for the expulsion of placental products along with the IV antibiotics to avoid infections. Micturition is also an effective way to expel the placenta as the full bladder helps to expel placenta from the womb. Breastfeeding causes the uterus to contract and may help the uterus for expulsion.
