Thanks for your question.
Placenta with two equal-sized lobes connected by a thin bridge is termed as bilobed placenta.Usually there arises non problem during the process of delivery and neither C section is mandatory.But often the most common symptom of a Bilobed Placenta is an increased risk of bleeding during pregnancy
The condition is often associated with multiple pregnancies, however no increased risk of fetal anomalies is observed.After delivery,complications due to a Bilobed Placenta could include:Increased chances of post-partum hemorrhage due to retained placental tissue and that need a manual removal of the retained segment under anesthesia.
I hope I was able to address your query. If you have any further problems, please do not hesitate to go to the doctor.
Wishing you all the best.
