Placenta Previa (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
If you have placenta previa and are not bleeding, it is important to follow certain precautions:
Call your doctor now or go to the closest emergency room right away if you have any vaginal bleeding.
If you have had placenta previa
After you have had placenta previa, you may have questions about a future pregnancy. Based on the nature of your condition, your doctor will be able to answer your questions and address your concerns.
In very rare cases, placenta previa causes a stillbirth or newborn death. Should you experience such a loss, allow yourself time to grieve. Expect that your partner, children, and other family members may also be deeply affected. Consider meeting with a support group, reading about the experiences of other women, and talking to friends, a counselor, or a member of the clergy to help you and your family cope with your loss. For more information, see the topic Grief and Grieving.
