Placenta Is Posterior
Placenta over cervix: Placenta previa is a complication of pregnancy where the placenta is covering the opening of the uterus called the cervix. It occurs in 1/200 pregnancies more commonly in patients with a previous c section. If diagnosed in early pregnancy it may resolve before delivery. If not a c section will be needed. It can cause painless bleeding often requiring bedrest. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Blocks birth canal.: Placenta previa occurs when it implants over the maternal cervix of the uterus, thereby blocking the birth canal and precluding safe vaginal delivery. This is a potentially life-threatening condition that is best managed by experienced obstetrician/maternal-fetal medicine specialist at a large tertiary hospital with blood bank and ICU availability. ...Read more
May be both: A previa is usually painless bleeding when the cervix is changing (dilating) causing bleeding from torn vessels being sheared off. It is a type of abruption although any bleeding from a detaching placenta is strictly called an abruption. These are usually away from the cervix and can be associated with cramping, pain, or heavy bleeding. If you have a previa, let your doc know if you bleed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My placenta is anterior! does having an anterior placenta effect the feeling of the baby's movements? What is a anterior placenta ?
Anterior = front: Anterior is just another name for the front. Visualize your womb as an upside down bag, with your placenta located on the front wall and the baby behind it.Location has little to do with perception of movements. Most first timers pick it up bu 20 wks, repeats do at 16-18. ...Read more
Distance form cervix: 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It is a leading cause of antepartum haemorrhage (vaginal bleeding). It affects approximately 0.4-0.5% of all labours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Placenta previa: Normally, the position of the placenta is near the top of the womb. In some cases however, the placenta stays in the lower portion (part) of the womb, and either partially or completely covers the cervix (neck of the womb). The described grading is when the placenta reaches the cervix, but doesn't cover it. ...Read more
No contractions.: Because the bleeding does not involve the contractile part of the uterus, only the placenta over the cervix. The placenta is devoid of innervation, therefore the mother does not experience pain in bleeding previa unless preterm labor is also present. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: As long as the placenta does not dip down so low as to block the cervix (a placenta previa) this is not a problem. Grade 0 simply means that the placenta is still immature which is what is expected. Increased placental maturity too early is potentially a problem. ...Read more
My ob says that having posterior marginal placenta previa is good news rather than it being anterior.. Is that true ?
Yes : Placenta previa is never good news, but the cesarean delivery is easier if we don't need to deliver through the placenta. An anterior placenta previa for someone with a previous cesarean section can be a very difficult delivery. You will want to recheck the placenta position closer to term if this was seen on an early sonogram. ...Read more

Small section, ltd.: 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. Symptoms: usually preterm contractions, sometimes vaginal bleed. Fetal monitoring is necessary. Wait, watch; abruption can self-heal sometimes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
