BronyMedic: What the hell?

I thought this was why the placenta was always sent to the pathology lab, to ensure the entire thing was expelled from the mother.


Not always... However I find it hard to believe that there was something missing from the giant tub it's first placed in or the box detailing where to send the placenta wasn't marked. This isn't exactly a small mistake.

However do keep in mind that this is coming from the Daily Fail.

I bet the doctors just thought she needed a little TLC. But, boy were they wrong! The Discovery that her placenta was still inside her at the A&E must have had her seeing STARZ! This kind of mistake is the Hallmark of a really unprofessional medical staff. Hopefully they got her on antibiotics and maybe even gave her a little Oxygen. This is really like the start of a bad movie on SyFy where the placenta grows into an amoeba-like zombie trilobitey bug-monster and bursts forth from her infected womb to lurk in the dark nooks of our Homes and Gardens and pick us off one by one until the human race is History.

/This would never happen on ESPN.

ftfa: But she claims that doctors at Queen's Hospital in Romford, Essex, weren't interested in her plight - and even refused to examine her when she went to A&E.

To be fair, Lifetime Network is probably better equipped for this sort of story.

The My Little Pony Killer: suggested that my SIL find a doula for her next pregnancy, should she choose to have another.


By doula, you mean Board Certified OBGYN or OB Nurse Praciticioner, correct? Someone who has the capabilities of providing the basic resuscitation care and drugs that 10% of all babies born in the United States will require?

The My Little Pony Killer: Not because I think she should have a home birth or anything crazy like that, but because her doula will be completely informed about the decisions she wants to make with her pregnancy and can help advocate for her when my brother is too emotional about new babby.


You don't even have to have medical training to be a doula. You can be one straight out of high school by calling yourself one. There is no standardization or licensure in the United States.

gweilo8888: davidphogan: That seems like a waste. There's no way it's still good to use for placenta sandwiches now.

I disagree. It's basically been kept inside a sterile, humidity-controlled slow-cooker for two months. It should be about ten notches beyond fork-tender by now.


Leftover pieces of meat inside of a woman's uterus isn't really healthy.  That's really not a sterile place either.

I didnt have this problem, but a different significantly painful and traumatic one, and doctors did not give a fark. They didnt even check my stitches before they discharged me. Before I ever even think of getting pregnant again I will find a DAMN good doctor cause some if them are just negligent uncaring douchebags. I honestly dont understand why they practice.

BronyMedic: usernameguy: Wait, really? It doesn't just plop out on its own?

It depends on a lot of things. Sometimes, you have a chuck that's left in because it had adhered to the uterine wall, or developed abnormally in terms if it's blood supply. Sometimes a chunk can be broken off because of trauma, or because of previous scarring and damage of the uterus.

That's why, at the very least, the OBGYN will examine the placenta to ensure it's intact after it passes, or will send it to the patho lab for the pathologist to put eyes on it.


Trauma sounds about right. The doctor that delivered me was impatient and basically tried to yank things out faster, which left a fair bit inside. My mother spent years basically bleeding to death slowly (or less slowly when menstruating) until a decent doctor finally went in for a look and fixed the whole thing.

rogue_L_chick: Dear god...all I can think about is what that must have smelled like...


You think that's bad, you should smell a neonate who had chorioamnionitis. It smells like rotten corpse fermenting in the fresh air of a summer sun on asphalt.

OK, I looked up what and how a "retained placenta" could happen, and it's just too nauseating to even describe here. Suffice it to say, I can see how it could happen even in a hospital delivery IF the doctor was really careless and hurried and IF they didn't bother to send the placenta down to the lab afterwards or if the pathologist just gave it a quick once-over and said "Yep, looks good to me!" and tossed it in the incinerator. Evidently, it's not all that uncommon for small pieces of the placenta to remain stuck to the inside of the uterus after delivery (at least, not as uncommon as one would like).

From what I understand, NIH doctors and labs are certainly capable of this kind of sloppy behavior, so the moral of this story is, if you feel bad after giving birth, get your afterbirth checked.

If only she could have found it in herself to put her faith in God. The Lord would never let a young mother come to harm when she has a little one to care for.

Science can only do so much and when it fails, as it always does, the Lord is always there to save us.
