Post subject: Low Lying Placenta in pregenancy
I am "Pawan" from Gurgaon, India. I am scared about something related to my partner's pregnancy. Docotrs are saying that she has lower lying placenta previa with grade 1. Just for your information. Placenta is the thing, which is responsible for providing oxyigen and food to the growing baby. Generally it is placed in the upper portion, but in case of 15-20% women, it is found lower lying. Earlier scan reports were showing its distance from utrus 3.5 cm, but now it is showing 1 cm. It is our first chance, so we are really worried about are baby. 25 weeks have been progressed and we are left with almost 2.5 months more. Anyone reading this topic, if he/she can tell us whether our concern is really worth, pls tell me what can be the best way that we can help our baby to come out in this world without any problems. Thanks a lot !
