Low Placental Position During Pregnancy

Description of the condition

Low placental position during pregnancy, or placental insufficiency, is a condition in which the placenta is located too low in the uterus, close to the cervix. This can lead to various complications during pregnancy and childbirth.


  • Low-lying placenta: when the placenta partially or completely covers the cervix.
  • Placental insufficiency: when the placenta does not provide the fetus with enough oxygen and nutrients.


Symptoms of low placental position may include vaginal bleeding, lower abdominal pain, and abnormal fetal presentation.


Causes of low placental position may include scarring on the cervix, multiple pregnancies, or simply random developmental anomalies.


Diagnosis is done through ultrasound examination and other methods of investigation.


Treatment depends on the specific situation, but may include medication therapy, observation, and surgical intervention.


Prevention includes maintaining a healthy lifestyle and seeking timely medical attention if any symptoms occur.


Treatment for low placental position is provided by an obstetrician-gynecologist.
