If the pregnant woman and baby are stable, it would be ideal to wait until 37-38 weeks of gestation to induce labour.
Otherwise, if any gestational complications are detected adjacent to placental abruption, such as fetal growth retardation, pre-eclampsia, abnormalities in the woman, etc., then it is advisable to induce labour.
If this situation occurs between the 23rd and 34th week, the pregnant woman will be given corticosteroids to help the baby's lungs mature. In addition, it is recommended that the woman remains in absolute rest.
