Can The Placenta Move At 7 Months?
My uterus is 7 months old, but the placenta is still below, can the placenta move? How to handle it
Hello, good afternoon, Ratna.
The placenta / placenta is an organ formed during pregnancy that serves to deliver oxygen and nutrients from the mother to the fetus, as well as removing wastes from the fetus. Placenta located in the lower uterus is called placenta previa, which consists of;
Placenta low location, in this condition the placenta is under the birth canal but does not cover the birth canal (cervical hole) partial placenta previa, where the birth canal is only partially covered by the placenta previa totalis, the birth canal is completely closed by the placenta increasing gestational age, then the size of the uterus will also be enlarged (because the size of the fetus also enlarges). As a result, the placenta attached to the uterine wall will be as if "shifted", thus allowing the placenta to no longer be near the birth canal. So, it is not impossible that the location of your placenta can shift yes ... There is no special treatment to overcome this condition and to accelerate the shift of the placenta. What you can do is take regular control to the obstetrician to monitor and ascertain your placental position (once a month at 7 months of gestation, 2 weeks at 8 to 9 months of pregnancy, and once a week after 36 weeks of gestation). If until the time of approaching childbirth, the position of the placenta has not changed, the obstetrician will generally advocate the delivery process by cesarean section, for the safety of the mother and fetus, because labor naturally / normally on the placenta that covers the birth canal can pose a risk of severe bleeding that can be dangerous mother and fetus.
That's all, hopefully it helps, and hopefully it is always healthy for you and your future baby :)
