Q:

Hi everyone... I'm 30 weeks pregnant.. My scan shows a low lying placenta covering the OS. Is there any chances for it to move up  in the coming weeks and chance of normal delivery?

Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa can you assist?

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello...
usually if low lying placenta is nearer to cervix then it moves as pregnancy progress.. but as you said placenta is covering os then it is quite difficult to move upwards... just relax and follow your doctor's instructions..
