Abstract

Placenta retention issues have complications that can endanger mothers after delivery because of their
strong association with bleeding. This research aims to determine the risk factors for placental retention in
maternal. This research was an observational analytic study with a case-control design with a sample size of
68 mothers. The research was conducted at the Tenriawaru Hospital in 2020. Data collection was carried out
by interview using a questionnaire. Then it was analyzed using the chi-square test. The results of the research
for the Age variable (p-value = 0.027) show that there is a relationship between age and the incidence of
placental retention, with the OR value: 3.4 (CL: 1.26–9.41) and for the parity variable (p-value = 0.44) there
was no relationship between parity and the incidence of placental retention, with the OR value: 0.47 (CL:
0.12–1.82). It can be concluded that of the two factors the incidence of placental retention including age and
parity, only age is associated with the incidence of retained placenta.
