However, the risk of infant death is far less than 0.5-1% of course. I cannot believe how many doctors support and encourage an amnio to give patients "peace of mind", but discourage a VBAC!!! I feel...

Any review of the medical literature on previa will quickly reveal that while asymptomatic previa is less common, it still occurs.

What I took issue with was not your account of your experience but rather...

We obviously just have 2 educated, yet differing opinons on the subject, Im sure the OP is greatful for all perspectives. You're incorrect, we do not have two different opinions here. We have the FACT that not all previas present...
Quote: Originally Posted by Kylahroo Personally, a low-lying placenta at this point wouldn't concern me at all and I personally wouldn't even follow up with a future U/S. For someone who has a true previa, it will become obvious in later pregnancy as they'll start to bleed. This is a very common misconception. Most women with placenta previa will bleed, yes, but a significant minority will not. I had complete placenta previa and I never bled...

Those women don't matter simply because they're not the majority? The 20 week u/s that detected my previa may well have...
Milkmommie - so sorry you are dealing with this. A lot of the questions you are asking have been discussed on this thread. Take a deep breath and go back to the beginning.... Dandecobb - congrats on the great improvement in levels! CounterGOPI - thanks for the M&D info. I looked at all the threads you linked. As far as hard evidence, so far we have a link to the TV station, but no news report as yet, and we have a European recall of one toy from 2006. That's...
