I've never heard of it so I looked it up and found two definitions:
Placenta Succenturiata: The placenta consists of a large lobe and a smaller one connecting together by membranes. The umbilical cord is inserted into the large lobe and branches of its vessels cross the membranes to the small succenturiate (accessory) lobe. The accessory lobe may be retained in the uterus after delivery leading to postpartum haemorrhage. This is suspected if a circular gap is detected in the membranes from which blood vessels pass towards the edge of the main placenta.
placenta succenturia´ta , succenturiate placenta an accessory portion attached to the main placenta by an artery or vein
Are you being considered high risk? Or does your doctor seemed really concerned about this? Hopefully everything will be fine, good luck!!
