Word Search - Healthy Placenta


A pretty nice placenta with very few calcifications (the tiny white areas - they feel like pebbles or grains of sand under a thin cloth). Posted by Picasa

So what makes calcifications form on a placenta?
Does calcification mean something different on a post term vs. a preterm placenta?

Wash Lady: Great questions! I don't know. Shall we look it up together? I'll look it up and see what I can find.

Great questions.
