    Default Anterior Placenta and C Section

    If you have an anterior placenta, can this be a potential problem if they are doing a c section? Or is the uterine wall large enough so they can choose where to cut if the placenta is anterior?

    My cuts are really low so I guess they could just adjust the position of where they cut.

    While I didn't have a CS, I did have an anterior placenta and after my waters broke and they were very meconium stained I was given a short space of time to progress after they induced me. They came to talk to me about a CS but by then my body had started pushing. So they definitely had no concerns about a CS for me.

    I had an anterior placenta with dd1 and no issues with csection. Because they cut so low I think its only an issue if the placenta is near the cervix.
