Low Lying Placenta

  • …My 20-week scan shows my placenta is low-lying… As many as one in four placentas are low-lying  in mid-pregnancy, covering the cervix and blocking baby’s exit, but  90% move up by the time baby’s due. In the very small percentage of pregnancies where the placenta touches the cervix triggering heavy bleeding you’ll most likely be taken into hospital to have yours and baby’s health monitored. If it doesn’t move, the only way baby can be born is by C-section, usually around 38 weeks.
