Can anybody tell me how common deterioration of the placenta is and what causes it? I've been googling the heck out of it and am not coming up with anything.

Are you post date?
Is some one trying to scaring you into being induced?
Some midwives in Gentlebirth (Lonnie Falaco midwifery archives) comment that they have recognised that clients with postdates labor can be associated low functioning thyroid.

Most likely, the reason you can't find anything is because there IS nothing to find. It is one of those obstetrical myths, by and large. There is even reason to believe, IMO, that some small degree of so-called 'placental deterioration' is actually part of the plan for triggering labor's onset at term.

But the actual occurrence of enough deterioration of the placenta to cause baby any issues is very low in an otherwise normal pregnancy.
