Q. Which finding indicates placental detachment?

A. An abrupt lengthening of the cord
B. A decrease in the number of contractions
C. Relaxation of the uterus
D. Decreased vaginal bleeding

Correct Answer: A

Explanation: An abrupt lengthening of the cord, an increase (not a decrease) in the number of contractions, and an increase (not a decrease) in vaginal bleeding are all indications that the placenta has detached from the wall of the uterus. Relaxation of the uterus isn't an indication for detachment of the placenta.
