No restrictions.: A "posterior placenta" is safely away from the cervical opening and should not have an increased risk of bleeding, therefore no restrictions. However, placenta previa and marginal previa have an increased risk of bleeding during pregnancy because the placenta covers or lies very close to the cervical opening. These conditions would require a restriction on intercourse. ...Read more
What does posterior placenta grade 2 high lying with visualization of sublacental sonolucency mean?
Posterior placenta 3.4-3.8cm from os 28w. Can it cause bleeding during lower segment formation? Or not over area that stretches? Csec booked
Sounds normal: Based only on this one piece of limited information the placenta is in a normal location. We look for the placenta to be more than 2 cm away from the cervical os. Yours sounds normal. If a c section is planned I would clarify with the doctor the rationale and make sure all is explained to you to your satisfaction ...Read more

13week us says posterior placenta low lying nuchal thickness 1.5mm dr. Advised downsyn screen blood test. Very afraid. May my baby have any disorder?
Nuchal thickness: Everyone gets offered the quad test screening for down's, trisomy 18 and spina bifida. Its actually a very good test. An increased nuchal thickness is associated with increase risk of Down's syndrome, but usually other things are seen with it. A cell free DNA test may be a good one to check. ...Read more
Had anatomy scan showed lowlying posterior placenta.19+3wks. Can this harm bub? Chances of moving? How can I help? I know c-sect is a possibility. Worried
Do not worry: This is not an uncommon finding. Low lying placenta will not harm the baby. It is very likely that with advancing pregnancy, the placenta will no longer be low lying. Most likely your OB will advise a follow up ultrasound to check on this. Until then, as long as there is no bleeding (which can occur in some cases), no special precautions are necessary. Best Wishes ...Read more
Iam 24 weeks pregnant and I want to know how much baby movement should be felt by me every day at this stage and I have a posterior placenta..
Fetal movements: Normally, you should be fully aware of your baby movements at this time. You should be able to feel your baby daily. Later on at about 28 weeks, you can do fetal kick counts. 5 in an hour or 10 in 2 hours is considered normal. ...Read more
I am 23 weeks pregnant. Some days fetal activity is good and some days its dull &until now I don't feel strong kick1.Have posterior placenta. Is tis ok.
Yes: It's still very early in your pregnancy. Some women don't feel regular fetal movement until 22-23 weeks of pregnancy, so I wouldn't worry at this point. Posterior placentas actually make it somewhat easier to feel movement than anterior placentas. I'm sure in 3-4 more weeks, you'll be feeling a lot more movement every day. Good luck! ...Read more
I have a posterior placenta reaching the internal OS at 32 weeks. What chance is there of it moving sufficiently by term to allow a natural birth?
Slim chance: Most placentas migrate upwards with uterine growth between weeks 20 and 30 of pregnancy. Moreover, at 32 weeks, any premature contractions are likely to expose the placental edge that is now present at the cervical os. If there is any bleeding whatsoever, please contact your OB MD immediately. ...Read more
What Does posterior placenta in Upper uterine seg with grade 2 maturity in 32 weeks pregnancy scan indicate? Does it mean a c section will b needed
OK and no:
C-section is done through the anterior approach. Knowing that the placenta is posterior means it is safe to do a routine c-section but does NOT mean it needs to be done.
Vaginal deliveries are always better than C-section unless there is an indication for the C-section. Ask your OB about these indications. ...Read more
13week preg. Posterior placenta. Left adnexal cyst 5.19cm x 5 cm. Sometimes having lower back pain in bone. Slight pain on lower right abdomen. Pls suggest?
My ob says that having posterior marginal placenta previa is good news rather than it being anterior. Is that true?
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
UTZ report at uau19 wks 5 days shows fetus in transverse position, placenta posterior grade 2, previa totalis. Will this improve? Or cs is the option
Likely to improve:
Placenta previa diagnosed in second trimester most often resolves by 3rd trimester. Usually by that time, the fetus is head down and vaginal delivery is an option.
Follow closely with ultrasounds this pregnancy to help guide your decision. Unlikely but if the placenta previa persists, then a csection is needed ...Read more
I am 4months pregnant and is said that I have a placenta posterior low lying grade 0 is there a posibility that placenta will move? What will I do?
Uterus grows: A low lying placenta at 4 months is something to monitor but not something to panic about. The placenta does not actually move but as the uterus grows the placenta will then be the normal position. It is too early in the pregnancy to be thinking about a C-section for low lying placentas. The majority of these will be resolved on later sonograms. ...Read more
What does it mean (grade0) posterior low lying placenta grade 0 partially covers os at 11 weeks. Is it dangerous with brown discharge? What to do?
MFM doctor: If you have a high risk pregnancy, you should be under the care of a maternal feral medicine OB specialist. If this is not the case, call your OB and ask why. This is a higher risk situation and should be followed closely by a skilled OB at the least ...Read more
4 month pregnancy. Placenta posterior lower position. Unbearable pain in interval of 3-5 days. Will my delivery be cesarean or can be normal? Probl cause?
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

Good day. I'm ony 36 weeks and 6 days, what does LATERAL PLACENTA WITH POSTERIOR COMPONENT, Grade 3, high lying means?
U/S findings: The physical location of your placenta inside your uterus. It is lateral (towards one side, left or right); on the posterior (back, nearer your spinal column, as opposed to your abdomen); Grade 3 high lying (??). The good thing is that the placenta is not covering the cervical opening (or Os). You should be talking to your OB about these things! Talk with him/her if you don't understand! ...Read more
