In most pregnancies, the placenta will be implanted in the front, top, right, or left side of the uterus. However, due to factors that are not yet clearly known, it could also be embedded in the placenta at the bottom, approaching, or even covering the birth canal. This condition is also called placenta previa. Frequently, this condition occurs in women with a history of pregnancy with placenta previa before, has a history of surgery around the uterus (for example, had a cesarean birth or had a curette), is pregnant with more than 1 fetus, becomes pregnant at an advanced age, and so on.
As pregnancy increases, the uterus will stretch, so the potential for the placenta to shift wide open. If it is true at the last examination the doctor states that your placental position has gone up and is no longer blocking the birth canal, then it is possible for you to have a normal delivery can happen. However, you need to know that not only the position of the placenta, a variety of other factors should also be considered in determining the best method of delivery, whether normal or cesarean, including maternal health conditions (such as history of hypertension, heart disease, pelvic size) and the fetus in your uterus ( for example fetal distress, abnormal fetal position, musculoskeletal disorders).
The condition of your fetus that does not go into the birth canal may also be influenced by the position of the placenta that was previously located below, making it difficult for the bottom of the fetus to enter the pelvic door. If at this time the placental position has shifted, then naturally the bottom of your fetus will go down by itself without the need for special handling. You can multiply your knees to get your fetus down to the pelvic upper door faster. The prostrate position referred to here is different from the usual prostration position. You should place your cheeks, chin, chest, and abdomen as low as possible on the floor (but don't crush the fetus) for a few minutes, and repeat this position several times a day.
Our advice, getting closer to HPL (day of birth forecast), multiply consult with your obstetrician (every 1 to 2 weeks) related to the preparation that must be done to facilitate your labor and your fetus later. For those of you who have a history of pregnancy with a low placenta, it is also advisable to minimize sexual relations to prevent the risk of excessive bleeding from the birth canal.
Hope this helps ...
