How does placenta previa cause preterm delivery?

How does placenta previa cause preterm delivery?

Bleeding and Cntrxns: Previa: Placenta overlies the cervix/birth canal. Gr 1 means placenta is close, Gr 4 means it's directly overlying/blocking the baby's exit -- high chance of preterm labor & bleeding; you'd need a C/S at 36-37wks. More common in woman w/ hx of C/S & smoking. Not much you can do but wait. If dx'ed early, the uterus still grows/stretches and a placenta can migrate away even in 3rd tri. Follow w/ US. ...Read more

Is preterm rupture of membrane is the same as preterm labor? What happens to the baby?

Not the same: A premature rupture of membranes (also known as "PROM") means that your water breaks before you actually go into labor. If this happens for more than 12-18 hours before you go into labor, then yes, this is harmful for the baby. It could lead to an infection. This risk is even higher if you are GBS positive. If your water breaks prematurely, you should call your Ob/Gyn to discuss the game plan. ...Read more

What is prolonged rupture of membranes?

Over 24 hours, but..: If more than 24 hours have passed between rupture of membranes and delivery the description of prolonged rupture of the membranes may be used. In such cases the risk of the baby and/or the mother getting an infection rises. So, generally in a full term situation you would like to achieve delivery sooner than that. When pregnancies are before the full term point you might want to avoid delivery. ...Read more
