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.
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: Hello dear 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. Dont lift any heavy things and do bed rest.
