Placenta (To Expel Afterbirth)

Bryan Applications, P

The after-birth is technically known as the placenta. When this organ is situated in the lower part of the womb, an occurrence described as placenta previa, contraction of the womb tend to loosen the attachment of portions of the placenta and so cause bleeding. This may occur from the end of the second month of pregnancy on-wards, and dangerous amounts of blood may be lost. The difficulties and dangers of labor are also increased. See: Accidental Hemorrhage..

Application and treatment:

Electrode pad applications should be limited to the lower abdomen, the back, and the sacrum to help slow bleeding and prevent infection. Standard treatment sessions at low to moderate output settings 30 minutes per day for relief.
