Using biochemical tests to measure placental function and improve pregnancy outcomes | Cochrane

The placenta (afterbirth) develops in the uterus during pregnancy to provide oxygen and nutrients to the growing baby and to remove waste products from the baby's blood. The placenta attaches to the wall of the uterus and is linked to the baby via the umbilical cord. The placenta plays a critical role in determining the health of the baby and mother. The health of the placenta can be assessed by performing tests on mothers' blood or urine to measure chemicals made by the placenta. Having this information could improve the outcome of pregnancy as professionals could intervene to prevent outcomes such as stillbirth or babies being born too small.
