Placenta is low lying and is grade two, it will not affect your baby. during delivery there may be more blood loss. so it will affect mother not baby. the blood loss is well compensated with blood transfusion. make sure your blood group is available if at all needed in the right time, that is during delivery.

it does not cause harm to baby I suppose, but follow up is very good with your doctor as frequently as  possible. Take care
