Placenta accreta is a rare condition that can present complications during your pregnancy and the delivery of your baby if your placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall. Part or all of the placenta may remain attached after childbirth, which could cause severe bleeding. If you’re at risk for this condition, you’ll receive care from Duke perinatologists who are experts in the medical and surgical care of women with this and other pregnancy-related complications. We are here for you from the moment placenta accreta is suspected, during your pregnancy, and through your baby’s delivery.
