Little is known about maternal venous return from the placenta, despite the fact this good venous drainage is critical for adequate flow into, and percolation through the placenta. In this abstract we aim to identify and characterise venous return by identifying regions of blood flowing across the placental wall, and we find similar velocities of blood flow entering and leaving the placenta.
