What are the symptoms of retained placenta after birth?


Answer by  pinoot1976 (267)

Most of the time you would present as postpartum bleeding, as these are usually torrential and may be fatal if not identified. More subtle presentation could be persistent foul smeeling postnatal discharge or even overwhelming systemis infection. It is strongly advised to see an obstetrician for assessment.
