Unless there are factors such as placenta previa, the placenta will deliver after the infant. This may take some time, so keep an eye out if the placenta has yet to deliver. Uterine massage may help with placental delivery. Once the placenta has delivered, inspect it thoroughly for any missing pieces or tears, as a torn placenta can be indicative of potentially life threatening uterine bleeding in the mother. After assuring that the placenta is fully intact, place it in a plastic bag and transport with the mother and child. If the placenta has not delivered do not attempt to "pull" it out via tension on the umbilical cord.
