Hi, Im 35 weeks pregnant and my last scan was at 32 weeks. I have a low lying placenta and was told that it is only 2.6 cm away from my cervix!
Will it move in time or will i need a C section? and I am absolutely terrfied of needles is there any other pain control options to and epidural if i have to have a C Section?
Answer: Hi, You may need another scan closer to term to see if it has moved. It is low but there is still a chance that it will be ifine for a vaginal birth. The best option for pain relief and anaesthetic for a caesarean birth is an epidural. The doctors putting them in are very skilled and quick and it is worth enduring. Best wishes, Alex.
