  1. That is what I had. I lost my baby at 24 weeks from an abruption. I had to have 5 blood transfusions, 2 surgeries and almost died myself. It is nothing to take lightly.

  2. C-section is the best option in bringing out the neonate to avoid fetal respiratory distress during labor.

  3. No sorry, my uterus was removed but I still have my cervix. I also have one ovary left, the other was removed due to endometriosis about two years ago.

  4. As for me, that was my last pregnancy. I lost a lot of blood and my baby was kept isolated for 2 days because he had trouble breathing. I was so out of it I have no idea what his apgars were. I chose to have a tubal ligation rather than risk another high risk pregnancy.

  5. Partial means they leave the ovaries.

    I was dx with marginal placenta previa in my second pregnancy after frequent spotting. I was 25 at time of dx had not 1 risk factor for it.. As he grew and my placenta grew up it pulled the previa out of the way of the cervical Os…. And I was able to have my son via vaginal birth.. I have a very trusting doctor an he trusts me so we we’re able to go through the pregnancy off of bedrest and I went full term. Was induced the day before my due date.. Mikah was a healthy 9 pound 2 ounce ball of love.

  7. I had a complete previa. Had two bleeds around 20 weeks. Delivered via planned c-section at 36 weeks. Ended with a partial hysterectomy and 4 units of blood. Baby was in NICU for a week due to under developed lungs. Very scary situation but we are fine now.

  8. I had a partial placental abruption. Delivered vaginally, quickly. My son was 6 weeks premature and had Apgar scores of 1, 3, 9. Went home 5 days later.

  9. And the mom bleeds when the cervix starts to dilate, or if there is any trauma to the os. The more over the cervix, the more she will bleed at either time.
    My second child was born vaginally despite a partial placentia previa. He was 6 weeks early.

  10. Replenishing our Obstretrics subject before with our great mentors Dr.Gargantiel and Dr.Concel!…i ambot na lng!…

  11. I have seen sooo many cases of placenta previa but all of have ceserian. Normal vaginal birth is sooo risky in these cases.

  12. yes good medical information to take care to give birth to child normally.but there are now more 70% cecarian than normal what may be the reason

  13. All types of placenta previa!! Cs is the only way for the delivery of the neonate!!

  14. Adherence of strick bed rest..
