Placenta Previa

Survivability of Placenta Previa

The biggest risk associated with placenta previa is severe bleeding or hemorrhage, which can threaten the survivability of both the mother and the baby. The baby may need to be delivered early, even before its major organs, including the lungs, have fully developed.

Other potential risks include:

  • Abnormal placental implantation
  • Slow fetal growth
  • Premature birth
  • Birth defects
  • Post-delivery infection
