What happens when placental dysfunction is there?

Placental dysfunction or uteroplacental insufficiency is a serious complication that occurs when the placenta does not develop properly or is damaged. This disorder is marked by a reduction in the maternal blood supply which leads to an inadequate supply of oxygen and nutrients to the baby from the mother’s bloodstream. The baby’s growth is affected and thrives leading to low birth weight, premature birth, and birth defects.
