Resolved Question:

I had a son and during the delivery the midwive mentioned that there was a greyish white matter in the placenta, got nervous and dropped the placenta on the floor so therefore it was not sent out to the lab. Is this condition normal and if not can you tell me what this is.

To be perfectly honest I would not worry about this at all.


If your placenta got you to delivering a healthy child then there was not a whole lot wrong with it.


There are no conditions that would present in this way.
