Answer: Generally low laying placenta does not cause any problem.
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.
Low-lying placenta may be picked up during a routine 20-week ultrasound scan appointment.
In some cases, a placenta that is seen to be low-lying will move upwards later in pregnancy.
Any bleeding from placenta praevia at the entrance to the womb in the second half of the pregnancy can be heavy and a risk to the baby and the mother's health. After a low-lying placenta diagnosis, seek medical advice if there's any bleeding during pregnancy.
Having a low-lying placenta means it is more likely a caesarean section delivery will be recommended.
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 praevia covers part of the cervical opening.
A total placenta praevia covers and blocks the cervical opening.
Answer: As your baby grows, your expanding uterus naturally pulls the placenta upwards away from your cervix. If the placenta is still lying low in your uterus after you are 20 weeks pregnant, it's called placenta praevia . Even at this stage, the placenta may still move up in time for your baby to be born.no it low lying placenta with not cause any problem if it is not much low... Placenta keeps on moving... So anything can happen...No need to worry l also had low lying placenta but I take normal precautions which were taken during pregnancy such such lifting heavy weight avoided, bending forward avoided, drinking plenty of water, eating nutritious and balanced diet, taking ample rest, walking as much as possible, don't stress and stain your body, etc....
