anterior placenta with C section delivery Lock Rss

Hi ladies. I am about 16 weeks and have been told placenta is anterior but not low. I had a previous C section. Just wondering what implications this has for next C section? Anyone experienced this?
Thanks!!

Hiya,
I'm having my second caesar in October and I've been told the same thing. My OB said the placenta was anterior but higher than my scar, which was a good thing. I guess that means they can get in easily at the same place as last time?

Thanks for your reply!
That puts my mind at ease, I guess this early on it never occurred to me that it could be at the front but a bit higher up above my scar! Fingers crossed smile

Anterior won't prevent a normal vaginal birth. Is that what you were worried about? Providing it stays high enough, you should be able to VBAC smile
