What is an abruption of the placenta? Is it dangerous?

An abruption of the placenta can occur after 24 weeks. In this condition, part of the placenta becomes detached from the wall of the womb. This is dangerous because it can cause severe bleeding into your womb and/or out through your vagina, and the blood supply to the baby can be compromised. So a 'major' abruption is very dangerous for you and the baby. This sort of abruption may require rapid delivery for you, and the baby's benefit.
