How is placenta previa diagnosed?
Placenta previa is a complication in which the placenta is inserted partially or wholly in the lower uterine segment.
Abdominal examination usually finds the uterus non tender , soft and relaxed. The foetus in such cases may be in an oblique , breech or lying transverse as a result of the abnormal position of the placenta.
Placenta previa can be confirmed with an ultrasound.
