Placenta previa is a condition which describes the position of the placenta during pregnancy as either partially or totally covering the cervix.

In most pregnancies, the placenta attaches at the top or side of the uterus. In placenta previa, the placenta attaches to the lower area of the uterus.

*The vast majority of Placenta Previa cases - almost 90% - will resolve itself during the 2nd trimester!
