Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
At eight months pregnancy, placenta posterior in upper sergment of uterus with grade 2 maturity is absolutely normal and safest location of placenta. The danger to baby might be due to other reasons which are not clear by the information you have given. It is best to ask about the cause of danger from the doctor.

Dear placenta is thing that provides support and nutrition to the body and it is attached to maternal side to uterus and fetal side with umbilical cord to baby.This is a low lying placement,usually it it attached to center portion of uterus known as fundus,but when it is low lying it may detach during delivery before baby is delivered leading to bleeding and problems for baby and mother both.Usually on repeated ultrasound if placenta is not moved then Cesarean is done to avoid complications.
