Placenta Clinic

A program of the Frances Bloomberg Centre for Women’s and Infants’ Health

The Placenta Clinic was established in the fall of 1998 by Drs. John Kingdom and Rory Windrim with the focus on providing multidisciplinary care to women with previous, current, or anticipated placental complications of pregnancy, as well as to their partners and/or families.

We are dedicated to the advancement of the care of women with pregnancies at risk of, or complicated by, placental diseases, and we work with a wide range of specialists in our hospital to provide the best clinical care possible to our patients.

In our teaching of medical students, residents, clinical fellows, allied health care workers and overseas visitors, our goal is to raise the importance of “placentology” in the care of pregnant women and women desiring children.

We also have a wide-ranging research program. Our studies encompass clinical research and translational/basic research projects, all designed to advance our understanding and the future prevention of ill health attributed to the placenta.

We hope this site will be of help to you, and we welcome your feedback! Please email Dr. John Kingdom at with any questions or suggestions.

Through your generous support, we continue to make significant advancements in maternal and fetal care. To make a donation to the Placenta Clinic, please click on the DONATE NOW button. Select “Designation: Other,” and enter “Placenta Clinic.”
