What is Placenta Previa?
Placenta previa is a
condition in which the placenta partially or wholly blocks the neck of the
uterus, thus interfering with normal delivery of a baby.
Placenta previa occurs in
about 1 out of every 200 pregnancies.
Often the condition is detected in
the third trimester, but itís sometimes spotted at as early as 17 weeks
either in a routine ultrasound or because some bleeding or pain is
occurring. In this condition the placenta lies low in the uterus and may
grow to partially or completely cover the opening of the uterus, the cervix.
Many cases of placenta previa
resolve themselves as the uterus grows and the placenta naturally moves
If the placenta is across the cervix it's unlikely to
resolve with time. The later in pregnancy that placenta previa exists,
the more likely it will be present at the time of delivery.
In more pronounced cases, the previa completely covers the cervical
opening and will not move far enough up, regardless of treatment. In these
cases, a caesarian section delivery is necessary.
Types of Placenta Previa
- Type I: Low
lying placenta - the lower margin within 5 cm of the cervix.
- Type II :
Marginal placenta previa - with the placenta just reaches the cervix.
- Type III:
Partial placenta previa - with the placenta partially covers the the
opening of the cervix.
- Type IV: Total placenta previa
- the placenta completely covers to
opening of the cervix. This type has the most serious risk to the mother.

bleeding than Types I and II plus bleeding occurs earlier in the 3rd
