Answer: Hi Dear! Placenta previa is a condition where the placenta is formed at such a low line of uterus that it covers the cervix (opening of the uterus) partially or entirely which decreases your chance of vaginal delivery. It may occur due to any prior surgical procedure in Uterine cavity or for scarring upper lining tissues in uterus. It may cause heavy bleeding, premature birth of baby etc. However there are chances thst the placenta may move up automatically at a later stage of pregnancy as your uterus keeps on growing. You should take rest as much as possible, avoid climbing stairs, dont lift weight. Dont be dissappointed there are many successful stories of placenta previa who has given birth to healthy child, incase you are a first time Mom i would suggest you to be mentally prepared for C-Section delivery. Hope this helps!

Answer: Hi dear, If the placental growth is upwards then you should be glad,that it won't be low lying again.but if the growth is downwards then I am afraid the placenta might close the cervix.so talk to your doctor and examine.
