Placenta Previa in Pregnancy (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Women with placenta previa who experience heavy bleeding may require blood transfusions to replace lost blood. Intravenous fluids are usually given. In some cases, tocolytic drugs (medications that slow down or inhibit labor) are given. Magnesium sulfate and terbutaline (Brethine) are examples of tocolytic drugs.
