I have had the opportunity to treat a handful of patients over the years who have been diagnosed with placenta previa. This is a condition in pregnancy where the placenta forms too low in the uterus. This is a dangerous condition as the placenta covers the opening to the cervix and can detach early in labor. If the placenta doesn't move away from the cervix these pregnancies will end with a cesarean (C- Section). For most women this is not the ideal way they had wanted their child to enter the world.
