Hello, The placenta may move to different positons during pregnancy. You should follow up with your obstetrician who will evaluate the position of your placenta and suggest the best delivery method delivery. However, if you have low lying placenta, you might need a c section. Most importantly, stay relaxed and positive.

Placental migration does take place. However your gynaecologist will decide if your placenta is safely situated or not. If it is ....you have a good chance to deliver normally.Dont worry. If the placenta is low lying then you might have to have a c section. Anyways there are several criteria to decide if you'll have a normal or c-section. So don't keep worrying about this.
