Answer: Hello dear
If ur placenta is near your cervix when you're ready to give birth, it may block your baby's exit route through your vagina snd it is known as low lying placenta or placenta previa.
Low lying placenta can anytime cause bleeding. So, precautions should be taken such as:
1. Do only light work
2. Avoid to have Intercourse
3. Take complete rest most of the time
4. Have regular check up to see haemoglobin level
But don't worry as risk is very low in low lying placenta as placenta will move upwards as ur pregnancy grows
Answer: placenta may still move up in time for your baby to be born. By the end of pregnancy, There can be complications closer to the birth if it hasn't moved but nothing too serious. You may have to have a c-section..sometimes you can lose more blood with placenta previa but that is not very common.dont take stress..take proper rest n healthy diet

Question: I have been diagnosed with low lying placenta......is it a very big issue
Answer: Hello ! Low-lying placenta, or placenta praevia, is a complication of pregnancy where the placenta that feeds the growing baby is attached to the lower part of the womb near to or covering the cervix.
A low lying placenta, by itself, may not require any treatment. If it is early in your pregnancy, before the twentieth week, then there is a good chance that the placenta will shift into an upward position as your uterus expands. If the placenta stays at a low lying position but is not near enough to the cervix to be classified as placenta previa.
However there are treatments to prevent the two most common complications of a low lying placenta: bleeding and preterm labor. To prevent these problems some women are placed on bed rest or limited activity. Especially activities that result in bouncing or jarring of the lower abdomen need to be avoided. Similarly some women need to refrain from sexual intercourse, or the use of rectal suppositories or vaginal douches/suppositories. The degree of restriction depends on whether or not the woman is experiencing any vaginal bleeding or pre-term labor.
There are several types of placenta praevia:
A low-lying placenta is near the cervical opening but not covering it. It will often move upward in the uterus as your due date approaches.
A partial placenta previa covers part of the cervical opening.
A total placenta previa covers and blocks the cervical opening.
Question: Is posterior low lying placenta really a very big problem
Usually the position of placenta is either at side or top if the placenta is attached at the back side of the uterus is posterior placenta, incase of low lying placenta it is attached at a lower end to the uterus, there are some difficulties as it may cover the cervix which can be a problem in vaginal birth ,it can cause pre term birth also.
Please do as the Doctor say, dont worry much,do nor walk fast, lot if bed rest, dont squat, dont lift heavy weight, avoid bumpy road, no intercourse, have fibrous food avoid constipation,
Good luck & hope this helps!

Question: I have a problem i.e.,placenta anterior low lying is it serious problem?is there any chance for pre delivery?
Answer: Hi dear,
Anterior placenta is though not a matter of concern at this stage.you need to check end of second trimester.usually anterior placenta could provide more cushioning to your baby and makes wall between your belly and baby,so you might feel your baby move less.notbto worry,as your placenta would provide same amount of nutrition to your baby as any other placenta. The risk in future could be the direction of placental growth up or down .if it starts growing downward,there are chances that it blocks the birth canal and you might start bleeding.resulting into emergency c-section. usually by end of third trimester,placenta pushes upwards.not to worry
