An aging placenta is when the placenta ages faster than the developing fetus. If allowed to age far enough, the placenta would eventually stop giving nutrition to the fetus. It is usually found among older women, smokers or drug users who are pregnant. I was none of these but I had it and had a preemie. I was just wondering if anybody else had an aging placenta too and if their child was born premature. Also, if you did and continued to have more children, did you have an aging placenta a second time?
