I learned Wed at my anatomy scan I have an anterior placenta. I had a posterior placenta with my son. Just wondering if it will affect anything or affect my c-section (I had to have scheduled c-section with son)
I don't know anything about this as this is our first baby,sorry! but I looked early at my notes from my 12 week scan it says on them that I also have this? Noone said anything to me at the time? Should I be worried?
I had one at 12wk but aware they move. I was wondering exactly the same, Ive read that it can cause extra bleeding with csection depending on position. Im hoping to have an ecs this time altho haven't spoke to the consultant as yet but worried this may affect it x
Anterior placenta simply means its at the front of your uterus instead of the back. Its not generally anything to worry about unless its low enough to get in the way of your cervix or hinder a c section. I have an anterior placenta but mines quite high so very unlikely to cover my cervix. The thing thats rare is when the placenta covers the cervix, but that can happen with both anterior and posterior placentas.
