Just a quick Q ...
DH and I are planning a UC for our 1st due toward the end of the month.
Neither he nor I have ever seen a human placenta in all its flesh and glory. I saw a cow placenta once, but it was not intact and it was about 10 yrs ago. All the placenta images we can find are in books--and they're black and white diagrams.
So, is it obvious when a placenta is intact or not intact? Does anyone have links to photographs of intact vs. not intact placentas so we can learn to tell the difference?
