How is a placental abruption diagnosed?
A doctor will ask about your symptoms and any history of trauma. A physical examination of the abdomen and a pelvic examination, as well as tests, such as a ultrasound and blood tests can be done to diagnose a placental abruption. The baby will also be monitored for signs of distress.
