I have an anterior placenta; what does that mean and are there any risks?


I just read the report after my 20+week anomaly scan, and it says "anterior placenta" on it. Apart from that, everything else was normal - what is an anterior placenta?

Hi hon, mine is anterior too. I googled it and it says it means that its at the front. Its perfectly normal, but baby movements may take longer to feel.

I have an anterior placenta too! I was confused as to what it meant but it means that the placenta is at the front so it will cushion the baby's kicks! Doesn't affect the health of you or your baby so don't worry! If you have a low lying anterior placenta then it may cover your cervix so you may have to have a c-section but in a huge majority of cases the placenta moves anyway!

Hope that helps! It's nothing to worry about

I have one too, as OP say as long as its not placenta previa (i think) where it covers the cervix.. its nothing to worry about... and they tend to move anyway!
I have been feeling kicks for about a month now, so it doesn't mean you'll not feel movement. just maybe not as strong.

I do too, my placenta is also covering my cervix very slightly ( just the end of it ) and the sonographer said she would be very surprised if it didn't move. I'm not worried at all yet!!! X
