    Default Retained placenta/placenta accreta

    If you had retained placenta or placenta accreta, where was your placenta positioned during pregnancy?

    Posterior. I had retained placenta after an emergency c-section due to severe preeclampsia and my placenta had severe abnormalities so i think that contributed to a bit being left behind.

    Ah. Mine was anterior first time. I do have a large abdominal scar so that may have impacted things. This time my placenta is prosterior.

    Gosh - I have no idea where my placenta was positioned but I had retained placenta with my first (was manually removed), so I expected it with my second but it came out perfectly.

    Ok so placement may not make a difference.

    Posterior for all 5 babies. After dd4 I had retained placenta but not with the others. Hers was also the quickest and easiest 3rd stage so not sure if that played a part.
