Hello Ema, thank you for the question.
First, we are sorry for your loss. Fetal death in utero can be caused by various things. Imperfect conditions in the placenta, abnormalities in the fetus, stunted fetal growth, or infection in the uterus, are some of the causes of fetal death. The placenta is indeed located can vary throughout the process of pregnancy. Generally along with the growth of the fetus, placenta, and uterus, the location of the placenta that was originally under can shift upward, so that it no longer covers the birth canal.
If the midwife states that the placenta does not cover the birth canal but it turns out that the opposite is true, it is possible that at the time of observation with ultrasound, the position of the fetus covering the placenta, or the position of the uterus slightly changed, so that the exact location of the placenta is difficult to determine. Ultrasound is a picture produced by the reflection of ultrasonic waves, so the picture that appears on the screen is not always as clear as when we see photos. Often in certain positions, the placenta is difficult to recognize.
Regarding peeling baby's skin, it is called maceration. The condition occurs in fetuses that have died long enough in the womb. Sometimes the mother is not aware that the fetus has died, so the fetus that has died, remains for several days or even weeks in the womb. That causes some fetal body tissue has begun to damage, marked by peeling skin.
