28 wks pregnant, previous c section, placenta anterior, no acretta now- placenta is 4cm above c section scar. Could acretta still develop at this pt?

Yes but low risk: Acretta can develop even in women who have never had a c/section. Fortunately this is rare. The risk is much higher if the placenta is covering the prior c/section scar. With the placenta 4cm from the scar, your risk is very low (but not zero). Best wishes! ...Read more

I'm O+, my husband is AB+. What's the likelihood of our baby having neonatal anemia? High risk pregnancy w/ maternal anemia and planned c-section cutting through anterior placenta previa.

My ob found dehiscence of low-t scar during 2nd c/s delivery @39w (bw 9lb; 16m interdelivery interval). I want a 3rd & last pregnancy. How would you manage risk of rupture--including spontaneous risk?

My ob found dehiscence of low-t scar during 2nd c/s delivery @39w (bw 9lb; 16m interdelivery interval). I want a 3rd & last pregnancy. How would you manage risk of rupture--including spontaneous risk?

At Time of Surgery: If determined to have another pregnancy, the best help would have been at time of surgery with a two layer closure of the uterine opening. Docs argue about best interval time but logically waiting over a year before conceiving appears to decrease risk of rupture. Lastly, the most dangerous thing is beyond your control since an accreta is your highest risk & unpreventable. A good OB - priceless! ...Read more
