Question: What is low lying placenta?what care shoud be taken?
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:
Do only light work
Avoid to have Intercourse
Take complete rest most of the time
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
Question: What precaution should be taken in low lying placenta
Answer: Hello dear. You can continue your daily activities as per normal unless you have been advised otherwise. Usually restrictions like no sex or lifting etc are prescribed to women who have placenta previa (placenta covering their cervix) and or those who experience blood loss due to a low lying placenta.
If you have a low lying placenta at 18-20 weeks, this does not mean you need a caesarean section. The placenta will highly likely be further away from the cervix at the end of your pregnancy. In your first and second trimesters, the uterus still has much growing to do, so an ultrasound late in your third trimester (after the uterus has finished growing) will give you and your doctor or midwife a better picture of what’s really going on – and if it really a matter of concern.
Hope it helps.
Question: What precautions should be taken with low lying placenta
Answer: low lying placenta can move up during the course of pregnancy. You must avoid intercourse and report any case of bleeding to your doctor. In a rare case that placenta does not move up also, chances of anything bad happening to the baby or mother is very less. Just be careful about episodes of bleeding and please do not have sexual intercourse till you are advised that it is safe to do so.
Question: 32 week pregnant. Posterior low lying placenta ..is it any problem.. what care should be taken for this?
Answer: Hi.. Dear The placenta develops in a woman’s uterus during pregnancy. This sac-like organ provides the developing baby with food and oxygen. It also removes waste products from the baby’s blood.
During pregnancy, the placenta moves as the uterus stretches and grows. It is normal for the placenta to be low in the uterus.. As the pregnancy continues and the uterus stretches, the placenta typically moves to the top of the uterus. By the Third trimester, the placenta should be near the top of the womb.
Most women with this condition require bed rest.
