    My previous 2 pregnancies had posterior placenta- this one is anterior! Will it make delivering it any harder?!

    i dont think it will change a thing hun caus the placenta falls down anyway as it comes away from the wall of the uterus

    Nope, same procedure! And no yanking as far as I remember, unless that's the sort of thing your MWs/OBs routinely do. :thumbup:

    Wouldnt know if its a routine MW thing or not lol.. Ive never seen the placenta nor felt it come out. Its strange.
    I often worry about delivering the placenta but when it comes to it I dont even notice its out....
