Normally, the placenta covers the top of the uterus, but if you develop placenta previa, the placenta partially covers the cervix. One out of every 200 to 250 pregnancies are affected by this condition, with varying severity. The cervix may be completely (called a complete or total previa), partially, or only marginally covered by the placenta. Most cases correct themselves as you get further along in your pregnancy., but in 10 % it is still present when you reach term and that can cause some complications.

You will usually be put on bed rest and have a c- section delivery
