There is still plenty of time for the baby to turn and the placenta to move. Only if the placenta is still low by 34 weeks is it a problem.

Hello Anita,

I am still pregnant with my first, so i am by no means an expert. So i might be wrong here.

Very often a low lying placenta corrects itself as the pregnancy progresses. I read an article the other day about this and it also said that usually a low lying placenta is only diagnosed early in the second trimester. I am not too sure about this, but i think your baby still has a lot of time to turn before birth...

Hopefully the more experieced ladies will be able to correct me if i am wrong.

Normally with a low lying placenta the baby cannot be delivered naturally, this might also be the reason that the baby is lying breech.

I am not an expert - this is just what I have read, the GynaeDoc will be able to assist you better.

Also go to www DOT women24 DOT com - this website, under the 'pregnancy' section provides a wealth of information.

Good luck, hope all goes well,
