Question: Is it possible to have normal delivery in placenta lying 2 cm away from os
Answer: Hi.. Dear When the placenta attaches low in the uterus, you'll hear people referring to it as a low-lying placenta. They're usually spotted on your routine 20-week ultrasound. As the uterus grows upwards, the placenta is likely to move away from the cervix... You may have a normal delivery and may not as well.. no one can assure you till the end whether you will have a normal or a cesarean delivery from before hand. However, you can climb stairs and do squats as well, approximately 20 reps in a day. But, I can give a general advice, which is common for all expecting mothers. However, you need to take approval from your gynaecologist, before doing these exercises, because she is aware of your case.
Question: Placenta posterior 2.5 cm above the os.will it be ok at the time of delivery? Is it ok for a normal delivery?
Answer: Hello!! It is a low lying placenta. This is a complication during pregnancy where the placenta moves down blocking the path of the baby to move. It will get better by the time of delivery or not is difficult to say but if the placenta remains in the same position, you will have to go for a C-section. Also currently it is better that you be in complete Bed rest and avoid too much of activity.
