    Default Placenta Previa/ Low lying placenta

    Not sure if i spelt that right, but anyway.
    I'm not pregnant, but we are hoping soon. My previous pregnancy, I was diagnosed with placenta previa, and needed a c-section. Even tho it was low grade PP.
    I've just a little nervous about getting pregnant again. I didnt enjoy the c-section. Well the C-section itself went fine, and i didn't mind it, but the recovery really sucked, and on top of that i got a uterine infection so my healing process took forever.
    So i'm wondering if anyone else had PP and then was fine for the next pregnancy? Also with the c-section who here have had one and then gone on to have a natural birth?
    Thank you!

    Have you read the article on the main site? http://www.bellybelly.com.au/article...acenta-praevia

    Your next pregnancy the placenta may implant somewhere completely different - it's random! And I can assure you lots of women have successfully had VBAC's, it's very possible for you too Again, check out the main site, there is a VBAC thread here and check out www.birthrites.org - dedicated to healing after caesarean and your options.
