Placenta Previa

A condition that occurs in approximately 0.5% of pregnancies (RCOG, 2018) where the placenta attaches either very close to, partially covering, or completely covering the internal os (the top of your cervix). It is usually detected during the 20-week scan and will usually mean baby is delivered via a planned caesarean section.
