There are two situations - low lying placenta and placenta previa. In placenta previa the placenta is on the mouth of the uterus. In this case there is no option but to have a cesarean birth because when labor starts the placenta will deliver before the baby and that is risky for the baby. A low lying placenta will generally move up in due course and it is a wait and watch situation. Even if the placenta is partially covering the cervix it may prove to be a challenge. For the moment relax. Check which of the above categories you fall into and then discuss the same with your doctor. If required you can always seek a second opinion.


don't worry till last trimester baby position may change.. last minute miracle can happen. anyway be prepared for any kinda delivery follow Ur dr. healthy baby is concerned too

The placenta is low lying but not covering the cervix. There is a very good chance that it will move up. Repeat ultrasound in week 28.
