I'm really glad to read the info. re: anterior placenta only increasing chance of hemmorage (not being a vbac deal-breaker).

I can feel the baby (and SEE him) kicking all over the front of my belly, so I don't know how to tell where exactly the placenta is (though I'm guessing the midwives could tell with doppler?).
Is anterior placenta is general a risk, or only if it's very low?
