Morbidly adherent placenta is increasingly common, as the number of women with previous caesarean section increases. It carries a high risk of morbidity and mortality due to massive obstetric haemorrhage at delivery. A national care bundle is currently being launched to highlight the problem and establish a best practice standard.
