When my son was born last year the midwives said my placenta was friable. I am wondering if this is something I need to be concerned with this pregnancy? Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks for your time. Valerie
Friable means that it basically just fell apart in their hands.
there is always concerns that something unusual can hapen again - i would talk to your doctor and ask him/her about the risks this poses to you and your unborn baby - problems with the placenta can cause fetal death - i would talk to my doctor!
