When to visit your doctor during your pregnancy

A fall or trauma to the stomach

A fall or trauma to the stomach (an impact in public transport, a fall at home etc.) can cause a slight detachment of your placenta. If this happens to you, immediately visit your doctor or the maternity hospital so that your baby’s vital signs and the state of the placenta can be checked through ultrasound. A blood sample will also be taken to check whether a mixing of your blood and your baby’s blood has occurred.
