Comparitively depicts placental abruption (detachment of the placenta) and the subsequent interruption of fetal circulation. Two images display the fetus and the placenta within the uterus, comparing normal placental attachment to  abnormal placental abruption. Enlargements contrast the normal fetal and maternal circulation with abnormal, interrupted circulation with bleeding, resulting in a compromised oxygen supply to the baby.
