Many adverse pregnancy outcomes are the result of placental disorders. It has been difficult to decipher the root cause of many of these disorders due to an overlap in identifiable placental pathology and pregnancy outcomes. The reason for this confusion may be related to the lack of an appropriate control placenta. An ideal control placenta that is not related to adverse pregnancy outcomes is rare. We propose our pooled database at the Global Pregnancy Collaboration (CoLab) could be a solution for researchers.
