I have a 6.6 x 4.6cm intramural fibroid that is lying at the leading edge of my placenta Im worried about labour can it cause a lot of bleeding after birth? What are the chances?

In brief: Possible

Anything like a fibroid can potentially lead to postpartum bleeding.
It is hard to give a percentage as there are so many variables. Your doctor has a number of techniques and medicines available in case this happens.
