What is Abruptio Placentae?

It is a pathological condition in which the early separation of the placenta occurs from the inner lining of the uterus before the completion of the second stage of labor. The early signs and symptoms exhibited will usually include heavy bleeding, abdominal pain or back pain within the last 12 weeks of pregnancy depending upon the grade of separation. If not clinically managed  appropriately, it could lead to fetal distress or even intrauterine death.
