At a scan on monday, we were devastated to be diagnosed with Grade 2 placenta previa. The placenta does not cover the os nor the presenting part of the baby (head) but is about 1cm from the OS. I was scanned at 34+ wks.
I have not had any bleeding as of yet.
We live in hope that the placenta may move up enough to allow vaginal birth to be possible.The local unit are not very supportive of this as an option from this stage of my pregnancy.
However, I have been reading varied articles in relation to vaginal birth with marginal placenta previas.
I would be interested to hear of any experiences/articles/research on when vaginal birth is still considered an option with marginal placenta previa.
