Complications during Pregnancy Answer A15906
Hi,

Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. Placenta previa is a complication that results from the placenta implanting either near to, or overlying, the outlet of the uterus (womb).

Because the placenta is rich in blood vessels, if it is implanted near the outlet of the uterus (the opening of the cervix), bleeding can occur when the cervix dilates or stretches. Placenta previa is the most common cause of painless bleeding in the later stages of pregnancy (after the 20th week). Treatment of placenta previa depends upon the extent and severity of bleeding, the gestational age and condition of the fetus, the position of the placenta and fetus, and whether the bleeding has stopped.

Cesarean delivery (C-section) is required for complete placenta previa and may be necessary for other types of placenta previa. A Cesarean delivery is usually planned for women with placenta previa as soon as the baby can be safely delivered (typically after 36 weeks' gestation), although an emergency Cesarean delivery at any earlier gestational age may be necessary for heavy bleeding that cannot be stopped after treatment in the hospital.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted if you have any additional queries.
