Placenta previa: I would abstain from anything in the vagina. The concern is any possible pressure on the cervix could cause an emergency situation. Find other ways for sexual release.

Mouth to penis CPR?: It is unlikely to transmit chlamydia unless the woman's mouth is already infected. In that case, it could produce a reaction(cpr). The mouth is rife with bacteria as opposed to the "cleaner" vagina, so before one "biblically knows" a partner, it is a great idea to know your partner well and remain monogamous.
