If you have placenta previa, your health care provider will monitor you and your baby to reduce the risk of these serious complications:

  • Bleeding. Severe, possibly life-threatening vaginal bleeding (hemorrhage) can occur during labor, delivery or the first few hours after delivery.
  • Preterm birth. Severe bleeding may prompt an emergency C-section before your baby is full term.
