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, but it may move up at a later stage of pregnancy along with the Uterus.. 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: My wife is having low lying placenta. What are the things to taken care of?
Answer: Hello Dear If your wife's placenta remains low-lying in the second half of pregnancy, your wife will have atleast one more scan to check whether the position of the placenta has moved with the development and stretching of the uterus. If your wife's placenta does not cover the cervix and have no bleeding during your wife's pregnancy, your wife's repeat ultrasound scan should be done till 36 weeks. However, a repeat ultrasound is recommended at 32 weeks if: - your wife's placenta covers the cervix at the 20-week scan - your wife have had a caesarean section before and placenta is low-lying at the front part of the uterus. Additional care will be given based on your individual circumstances. If your wife have major placenta praevia (the placenta covers the cervix) your wife may be offered admission to hospital after 34 weeks of pregnancy. Even if your wife have had no symptoms before, there is a small risk that your wife could bleed suddenly and severely, which may mean that your wife need an urgent caesarean section. You should always contact the hospital if your wife have a low-lying placenta and have any bleeding, contractions or pain. If your wife's placenta praevia is confirmed, you and your partner should have the opportunity to discuss the options for delivery with your doctor. Depending on your circumstances, your wife may be advised to have a planned caesarean section. You may need to have your baby in a hospital which has additional expertise available.

Question: I am 24 weeks pregnant now. I have low lying placenta. Is bed rest is essential?
Answer: Hello If ur advised bed rest from ur doctor then it's necessary Don't worry much about low lying placenta. Many ppl have it. Just take enough bed rest, so that when your uterus grows the placenta automatically moves up. Only idea here is to not make the placenta move further down by lifting heavy things, walking faster kind of strenuous things involving the pelvic region. You can sit for as much as you want. Just keep your legs elevated so that your pelvic region is stress free. And if you feel like walking, walk very slowly. Avoid long travels or travels on bumpy roads even if it's shorter. Do this for 4-6 weeks and during the next scan you should find out that your placenta has moved up. Relax and enjoy your pregnancy. Though this is a serious medical condition, it's remedy is veryc very simple and easily solved in shorter duration. ,

Question: Please tell things to be taken care when Low lying placenta covers os
Answer: 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.
