Question: my 6th month is running my level 2 scan is done and placenta is posterior( grade 1 maturity) with lower margin of placenta about 2.3cm from internal os ...what does its mean or is it normal
Answer: When the placenta develops at the back wall of the uterus, it is considered posterior placenta. This happens when the fertilised egg travels through the fallopian tube and attaches itself on the back or posterior side of the uterus. Having both anterior and posterior placenta is normal and doesn’t affect the growth and development of the baby. However, mothers with posterior placenta might seem to have a little more advantage than those who have anterior placenta. This is because having the placenta on the back wall of the uterus means feeling the baby’s movements and kicks early and stronger. Moreover, posterior placenta is considered to be the best for the baby as it allows the baby to grow and descend to the right position and align in the birth canal for a vaginal birth. placenta position is if it grows towards the cervix or lower end of the uterus. This is called placenta previa. In such a scenario chances of placenta detachment from the unstable position of the cervix is possible which can cause premature labour or internal bleeding. Doctor will closely monitor and inform you about any changes in position.
