i gave birth at 30 weeks because my plancenta started to detach itsself and none of the doctors could or would tell me why. my daughter was in the nicu for several months getting blood tranfusions,having an heart murmor and having an stress ulcer caused by the medicine given to close the murmor. is there any way to find out of my placenta was starting to detach in the very beginning and i wouldnt of been able to go full term? i had my daughter the night that i had my unltrasound and the day after i had my 30 wk check up. how could my doctor or the people who did my 5mth and 7th month ultrasound not of seen this?

  • hi ya, sometimes docs do not realise these things as it all depends on whos actualy caring for you. for example were you actualy under a trainee/junior (of whom was not realy educated enough to see/deal with these things).i had a still birth 9 years ago at 6-7months preagnant.and it had also been dead inside me for 1month even though i had been to my appointments between gp and hostpital.i almost died and was at high risk of blood poisoning. i understand your questions espiecaly when they do this stuff most days. but some of us do slip through the net.much to my surprise they also found at 23years of age at the time i had only 1 kidney ??? how bizarre !!!!! most probs we all encounter, are the staff providing care when they are very over worked thus not thinking straight.just to remember also they have worked hard with commitment towards their degrees within their proffesion and the last thing they would want is to let this sort of thing happen.although it doesnt compensate for what you have been through.the best answer is to get post motem results and medical solicitor of whom can translate all those long difficult medical words.best wishes.
