  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    This condition of baby placenta downward side is medically known as Placenta Previa. In this case, you need extra rest, avoid exertion and follow complete abstinence. In 70 % of such cases, placenta gradually moves upward as pregnancy advances if it is not complete Placenta Previa. You cannot do anything about it, and you need to stay calm as well as take good rest. Your doctor should regularly monitor the position of placenta throughout the pregnancy.
    Some complications of low placenta include:
    - Preterm labor,
    - Antepartum hemorrhage ( any bleeding after 20 week )
    - Excessive bleeding during labor
    - Fetal distress which could lead to delivery through c-section

    But it is too early for you to worry. As mentioned in 70% cases, placenta gradually moves upward.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
