In today’s episode we explore the world of placental abnormalities. We will review placenta previa, acreta spectrum disorders, and cord anomalies including velamentous cords and the single umbilical artery. In this review we hope to share which one’s are interesting, which one’s need extra workup or monitoring, and which one’s are downright dangerous requiring specialist care?
