Placental abruption.

Premature separation of the placenta from the uterine wall can cause the baby to be born much earlier than planned, often resulting in low birth weight and poor organ development. In addition, the mother can suffer severe hemorrhaging that could be life-threatening without a transfusion.

Miscarriage or stillbirth.

Trauma to an unborn baby before the 20th week of pregnancy can result in a miscarriage, while an accident after 20 weeks of pregnancy may cause a stillbirth.
