Different things: These are distinctly different things. A subchorionic hematoma is a collection of blood in the layer between the membranes and the placenta. It is typically found in the 1st trimester when someone experiences bleeding. A placenta accreta is when the placenta is attached too deeply into the uterine wall. You could have both things but they are not typically related. ...Read more

Random chance: The embryo implants on the uterine lining, and at that location the placenta starts to grow. 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

Some can develop in a normal placenta late in pregnancy (such as replacement of healthy tissue with fibrous tissue). Not all are detectable by ultrasound. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
