    Yes, my first was low lying, but as time passed, it stretched away, and I had a fine birth. 1cm away isn't that close, so chances are you'll be fine.

    Placenta previa is classified according to the placement of the placenta:
    • Type I or low lying: The placenta encroaches the lower segment of the uterus but does not infringe on the cervical os.
    • Type II or marginal: The placenta touches, but does not cover, the top of the cervix.
    • Type III or partial: The placenta partially covers the top of the cervix
    • Type IV or complete: The placenta completely covers the top of the cervix
    Usually only grade 3 or 4 necessitate a cesarean, it does depend on the type of care you are getting.

    I had grade 1 last pregnancy and the doctors gave me the option of choosing to have an early caesarian or trying to go natural. We wanted bubs to be as safe as possible so had decided for the caesarian, but unfortunately she passed away a week before we were due to have due to the umbilical cord around her neck. They did want me to move to the town where the hospital was though (from 36 weeks on) in case I ran into problems.
    Good luck!!

    Hi

    I currently have grade 2 PP (its touching but not covering)at 24wks, at 20wks it was low lying and its actually migrated to touching, which i though was strange but I was told sometimes the baby position can change the way the placenta is seen. IE: my bubs was transverse at 20wks and is now head down.
    The Dr who did my most recent scan at 24wks said that most research indicates up to 2cm away is fine for natural birth, anything under that (at 36wks) they either do a monitored/induced birth in case of needing c section due to bleeding or some Obs just book you for a c section. Over 3cm away is fine to natural birth apparently.

    your placenta moves north!

    I'm currently in the same boat. At my 19 week scan I was found to have grade 2.. I've since had a midwife appointment, and she didn't really say anything about it. I have another appointment on Tuesday, so I'll ask about it then.. Fingers crossed it shifts though.. I'm dreading having to have a c-section!!

    Good luck!

    Hello, I went to an appointment today to find the results for my 20 week scan and everything is fine except I have a low lying placenta.. Mine is 0.4cm away :-/ I know I can't chose how thing are going to go but I'm a little stressed because the last thing I want is a c section.

    Mine was the same but all good at 32 week scan. Only a very small percentage of women need a c-section due to low lying placenta so don't stress

    Mine turned out fine at my 28 week scan they found that the placenta had moved right away I think it's a bit silly that they tell you these things so early. Sends you right into panic mode!
