Why does placental abruption occur?

What is placental abruption?

Placental abruption is a condition in which the placenta partially -- and in some cases almost completely -- peels away from the uterine wall before delivery. It can deprive the fetus of oxygen and, in severe cases, cause bleeding in the mother that endangers both her and the baby.
