Question: what does placenta fundal and maturity grade zero mean?
Answer: The placenta is an organ that connects the mother’s uterine wall with the developing baby. It transports nutrients into the developing fetus. Usually, the fertilized egg implants itself in the posterior uterus, which is near to the spine. But, in some cases, the egg implants in the opposite side, that is the anterior wall of the uterus, which is close to the abdomen.
The placental position in one of the following ways:
• Anterior – If it implants on the front of the uterine wall
• Posterior – If it implants on the back of the uterine wall
• Fundal – If it implants on the top of the uterine wall
• Right or left – If it implants on the right or left side of the uterus
As your pregnancy progresses, the placenta will mature which is measured in grades. Grade 0 means your placenta does not show any calcifications and therefore has not started to mature which is good for 27 weeks.
Question: Placenta posterior left lateral grade 3 maturity what does it mean???
Answer: Hi dear,
Posterior placenta is when the placenta is positioned at the behind wall of uterus.This is considered the best location for the baby to be in as it allows the baby to move into the anterior position just before it is born.as it doesn't block the birth canal and also it doesn't provide extra cushion to baby so you could feel the baby movements.Placental maturity is graded under 0-3.usually grade 3 maturity is reached final weeks of pregnancy.once the maturity or calcification has reached 3 level, nutrition and oxygen hardly circulates to baby.if the maturity reaches early then there is risk for baby getting less oxygen and nutrients due to excess calcification on placental walls.talk to your doctor about your level of risk.if the risk is more,pre term delivery is recommended.
