    Default Bicornuate uterus, anterior placenta and breech at 34 weeks...

    Hi all.. As the title suggests, I have a bicornuate uterus, and found out yesterday at my 34 week scan that bub is breech and I also have an anterior placenta. I was hoping for a natural birth, but I have been told that there isn't much chance bub will turn given how far along I am and how little space she has in there so chances are I will be having a C section... I have read that having an anterior placenta can cause issues with a c section (Higher risk of bleeding) and was wondering if anyone else on here has had a similar experience and can put my mind at ease a little..

    I have a BU and both my pregnancies had anterior placentas. Ended with c sections for both (first time DD was face presentation and got stuck, second time was uterine rupture). I think it depends on where the placenta is in relation to where they make the incision, as well as the various blood vessels feeding into it, as to how much bleeding there would be. My DD c section I lost very little blood, my DS I needed blood transfusions (but that was mostly because of the rupture).

    Hi Riz
    I was like you - I found out at 34 weeks that my bubs was breech and with an anterior placenta I too was worried. My ob had said that there was little chance of bubs turning and to be honest it didnt bother me either way - she had to come out some way. It was all fine - placenta wise and c-section everything went smoothly.
    Good luck and all the best

    Thanks guys I'm now booked in for a c section on 6th January. I'm a bit more relaxed after having a good chat with the doctor. Can't wait to meet my little girl!
