In brief: Placenta previa

Placenta previa is a condition where the placenta grows over the opening to the cervix (i.
e. "previous to" or before the fetus). This can result in bleeding and, if not carefully managed, can threaten the health of both mom and baby. Dr. Lewis is exactly right: see your OB and carefully follow their advice to the letter, which may include bed-rest and certainly a c-section.
