Retained Placenta is when not all of the placenta is delivered with your baby. It can lead to a serious infection and you could be entitled to compensation.
Following a C-section, the likelihood of suffering from retained placenta is increased due to the possibility of the placenta embedding itself in scar tissue.
After a C-section, any remaining placental products should be removed and checked thoroughly so that none remain. Failing to do that could lead to infection.
Failing to remove placental products after a C-section could be considered negligence, and you could be entitled to compensation.

That’s why we undertake all medical negligence cases – including those for retained placenta – on a no-win, no-fee basis.
