Usually, it is on a portion of the uterus that will stretch and thin during pregnancy, and is nowhere near the internal cervical opening. However, sometimes the embryo implants very near the internal cervical opening, resulting in a low-lying placenta or even a placenta covering the opening, req. C-sec. ...Read more

Can a placenta abruption cause the baby to die?

Can a placenta abruption cause the baby to die?

If big enough, yes: Abruption is a bleed from the placenta; a disruption of either the mother or baby's blood supply. Many causes: trauma, high blood pressure, drugs (cocaine), preterm labor, polyhydramnios. Can be very large or very small, so even US can miss a diagnosis.

If placenta is 3.4cm from os at 28w can the formation of lower segment and stretching of isthmus cause bleeding or is it high enough not to cause it?

If placenta is 3.4cm from os at 28w can the formation of lower segment and stretching of isthmus cause bleeding or is it high enough not to cause it?

Bleeding risk is low: The edge of your placenta is likely to remain away from the internal os of your cervix and possibly to "move up" as your pregnancy progresses. Therefore the possibility of placental site bleeding seems very low. ...Read more

What is the cause of placenta accreta?

What is the cause of placenta accreta?

Uterine scars/defect: The placenta tends to implant over pre-existing uterine scars or defects; when that occurs, the invasive nature of the placenta can lead to abnormally increased vascularity in areas without sufficient uterine muscle to control the bleeding once the placenta is delivered (particularly near the cervix). That is potentially life-threatening if undiagnosed until delivery and managed in small hospital! ...Read more
