How does my doctor pick how my placenta previa will be treated?

ANSWER

The treatment you get for placenta previa depends on a number of things, such as:

  • Your health and your baby’s health
  • How far along you are in your pregnancy
  • How much you’re bleeding
  • Whether the bleeding has stopped
  • The position of your baby and the placenta
