Posterior Placenta Previa
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

Attached over cervix: Placenta previa is when the placenta attaches low inside the uterus, near theopening of the birth canal/cervix. This can cause problems during the birth process because when the cervix starts dilating it could tear the blood vessels in the placenta, depriving the baby of blood and making mom lose too much blood. To be safe, many ob's recommend a c-section instead of vaginal birth. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Ultrasound: Ultrasound is the main way to follow a previa. If your previa resolves with time, your labor should be the same as anyone else's. If it doesn't, tests for anemia, clotting factors, and blood availabilty are tests that are performed to be prepared for any emergency at delivery. Most patients are at bed rest in their 2nd trimester and pelvic rest until delivery. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: There is nothing that you can do to change the location of the placenta. If it is covering the cervix, you will need to be delivered by c section. Intercourse needs to be avoided due to the risk of significant bleeding. A partial previa diagnosed early in the pregnancy may improve or resolve completely as the uterus continues to grow. A complete previa is unlikely to resolve. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Listen to your Doc: If it's early in your first trimester, usuallly not much different. In your late second or third trimester, listen to your doc. They'll prescribe rest, definitely to the hospital if you have any bleeding or cramping, and serial ultrasounds to see if the cervix has cleared.
