Placenta Previa

PP is when the placenta attaches itself near to or on top of the cervix at the bottom of the uterus. This may become dangerous because when the cervix begins to open, the part of the placenta that covers the cervix will become detached. The detachment of the placenta from the uterine wall is called placental abruption. This detaching of the placenta can trigger vaginal bleeding, the extent of which is often unpredictable, and can place your life and the life of your baby at risk. Risk factors include previous placenta previa, women who are younger than 20 or older than 30 and women with large placentas.
