Placenta

Hi there, my scan that I had done at 29 weeks showed that my placenta maturity was that of 34 weeks, what causes this and what are the complications thereof. thanks

This is not a very sensitive test. It can mean that the placenta is not functioning as well as it should, and smoking is a common cause of this.
