What can go wrong in delivering the placenta?

Sometimes, it won''t come out and this is often because your bladder is full. Once this has been sorted out, the placenta usually comes out easily. Rarely, the placenta is stuck to the wall of your womb; in this case you will need to go to operating theatre to have it removed in an operation called ''manual removal of the placanta''. Sometimes, your womb relaxes and you haemorrhage. This is not uncommon and the staff are experts at dealing with this problem quickly. If you are on your own (say while the midwife has gone to check the placenta) and you start to bleed (more than a period) don''t wait for her to come back, call for help, as you can lose a lot of blood quickly and this post partum haemorrhage (PPH) is dangerous.
