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

How often does placenta accreta go undiagnosed even after a csection delivery?

How often does placenta accreta go undiagnosed even after a csection delivery?

Placenta accreta: A previously undiagnosed placenta accrete may be diagnosed at the time of a cesarean section. This would occur when the OB is trying to remove the placenta but cannot because it is attached (accreta). On the other hand, if the placenta detaches easily, the uterine cavity is always explored so it would be rare to have an attached placenta left behind but a focal placenta accrete could be missed. ...Read more

Describe the features of a breech delivery and its complications.?

Breech delivery: Basically means delivering first the baby butt then the head. It is very risky because head can get trapped inside the uterus and also hypoxic episodes are more prone in this case of delivery. Head is the largest part of the baby so maternal pelvis may not accomodate the head. Today in civilised world no one delivers breech unless the baby butt is out and you can't do a cesarean. ...Read more

Is it possible to have a normal delivery if the baby is breech?

Is it possible to have a normal delivery if the baby is breech?

Yes: By definition, a breech delivery is not normal, because it is not the typical way for a fetus to present. However, that does not mean the baby cannot be delivered in the normal fashion, i.e., by the vaginal route. Delivering a breech fetus by the vaginal route does carry some additional risk, since it can be more difficult, so the medical team must be experienced in this type of vaginal delivery. ...Read more

Cs delivery due to breech on my first child , now 8 months. Preggy had an ultrasound and babys position headdown is it going to be normal delivery?

Maybe,maybe not: Vaginal delivery after cs is possible but must be approached with a plan for both possibilities.Here a woman is watched through labor and if progressing well, will deliver from below. If there is any slow down or problems identified the delivery is planned with a double setup, wherein both natural delivery or conversion to surgical delivery can be done in minutes. ...Read more

If till 35 or 36 wk of pregnancy baby is in breech position. Can baby  still  change its position. Can verginial delivery possible in breech  babies?

Breech presentation: At 35-36 weeks there is still time for your baby to flip and become cephalic (head first). However after 38 weeks or so, it is very unlikely that your baby will flip. If your baby is breech at that time, a c-section is usually scheduled. ...Read more

I have a newborn baby girl and on the way to delivery it was discovered that it's a breech baby, now she has a breech head. What to do to solve this?

Usually c-section: The head is the largest structure to pass through the birth canal & it would pinch off the placenta providing oxygen during delivery. In most cases breech babies are delivered C-section in the US. In rare cases the OB can do a version & move baby into a head first position, but usually they do it while set up to do the surgery. ...Read more

15 days pp C-section delivery due to breech position. Pain, numbness and reduced mobility in hands and feet when I wake up.. Should I be concerned?

Positional Numbness: Your symptoms are likely due to you not moving much when you sleep due to your incisional pain. When you stay in one position you place pressure on the nerves and they " go to sleep" resulting in the symptoms you describe. Once you get moving or change positions those symptoms go away. If they do not then see your doctor. As you get further out from surgery and move more at night it will improve. ...Read more

How to move breech baby on my own?

How to move breech baby on my own?

You should not: Depending on the month of pregnancy, the fetus may normally be in a breech position, and many fetuses that are breech during the early third trimester will "self-correct" during the last trimester. While there are various methods described for turning a breech baby, none have been sufficiently tested or proven. You should not try these on your own without first discussing with your obstetrician. ...Read more
