Worried
Good day Gynea Doc

My sister is 19 weeks pregnant and went for a check up yesterday and her gynea told her that her placenta is lying a bit low, could this be a problem?

She has had 3 miscarriages all at 8 weeks though.

Thanks
Michelle

At 19 weeks this is quite common. There is a good chance that it will move later in the pregnancy.
