The Effect Of Placing The Placenta Close To The Baby’s Face?
Hello doctor, yesterday I had a 4 d ultrasound.rnAnd it turns out that the face of my future child can’t be ultrasound because the distance between the face and the placenta is very close.rnMy question is “whether at the time of growing months and my baby-to-be the bigger it will be disturbed by the distance of the placenta?
Good morning Dewi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The placenta or placenta is the part of the fetus that is directly connected to the mother. The presence of the placenta is important to ensure the fetus gets all the nutrients, oxygen and fluids it needs to develop in the uterus during pregnancy.
Regarding your question, so far, the location of the placenta close to the baby's face is not a serious condition that requires further treatment, more so because the position of the baby prevents ultrasound from detecting your baby's face properly. Over time, the baby's position can still move and the face will be more easily detected by ultrasound.
Although not in the form of a placenta that is too close to the face, you should know that placental disorders can occur in any pregnant woman. Among them are a placenta that is shed, a placenta that partially or completely blocks the birth canal, a placenta that grows too deep in the uterine wall, and a placenta that is not fully developed or damaged so that it cannot deliver the nutrients it needs to the baby.
Among the risk factors for this placental disorder are:
High blood pressure
Pregnant over the age of 40
Early rupture of membranes
Blood clotting disorders
Have you ever had surgery on your uterus?
Have you ever had an impact or injury to your stomach?
Previous history of placental disorders
So it would be better if you still obey your obstetrician's advice during pregnancy and keep regular checkups so that if something goes wrong, especially if you have one or more of the risk factors above, treatment can be done as soon as possible. If you experience bleeding during pregnancy, pain or cramping, see a doctor immediately. Also avoid excess activity and cigarette smoke as well as pollution, and increase the consumption of nutritious foods such as vegetables and fruit. Hope your pregnancy and delivery goes well.
So, hopefully useful.
