hello..
Low-lying placenta, or placenta previa, 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.
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 c-sec delivery will be recommended.
types are- 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.. treatment- 90% of placenta praevias early in pregnancy resolve on their own, early treatment is often not necessary unless there are other complications. You may be advised to abstain from sex. Your doctor will usually repeat ultrasounds later in pregnancy to verify the position of the placenta. Women with placenta praevia as their due date approaches nearly always give birth by caesarean delivery..
