What are the risks of turning a baby that is breech with a anterior placenta?

More difficult: The risk of causing an abnormality in the baby's heart rate is the same regardless of where the placenta is. An anterior placenta makes turning the baby a little more challenging because it is in between the doctor's hands and the baby. ...Read more

I recently went to get an u/s at 38 weeks and they told me the baby is breech and that they see 2 placentas but only see one baby. What does it mean?

Cesarean section?: Breech presentation at term is best managed with prelabor cesarean section unless your obstetrician thinks that an external cephalic version is likely to be successful, or your fetus decides to turn head down on its own. Paraplacenta is not very rare but carries risks for vasa previa (require cesarean section to avoid fetal exsanguination in labor) and postpartum hemorrhage from retained placenta. ...Read more

Im 25 weeks pregnant. Diagnosed with placenta previa totalis. Baby is in breech position. Is there a chance of my placenta migrating and baby rotating?

Im 25 weeks pregnant. Diagnosed with placenta previa totalis. Baby is in breech position. Is there a chance of my placenta migrating and baby rotating?

Yes there is!: As the uterus grows your placenta may migrate up, and the baby may turn to the vertex (head down) position. There is no guarantee. You need to be watched closely. If previa still exists and/or baby is still breech at term, you'll need a c section. Avoid intercourse or anything else in the vagina while you have a previa. This could cause severe bleeding. Be seen for any bleeding. Good luck. ...Read more

Bag of water: Cord prolapse is a known complication of a footling breech presentation but the bag of water must be broken for this to happen. You could ask your doctor if there is any reason to suspect that you would be at risk for preterm labor or preterm rupture of membranes. Many babies are breech at 29 weeks with only a tiny percent staying that way at term. ...Read more

Anterior placenta: Tis is describing where the baby's placenta is implanted on the wall of the uterus - yours is low lying, on the anterior, or belly button side of the uterus, and is in a breech position - head up, body down - that is ok at 26 weeks. The anterior low-lying placenta could be a problem with bleeding in labor, called placenta previa - please discuss with your OB for more information ...Read more
