Hello
Welcome to HCM
Thanks for posting your query. I understand your concerns. As your wife is having low lying placenta with slight abrupt ion, there is always a risk to the baby and mother.

There is also a possibility of preterm delivery.

If the pregnancy continues upto term, there are possibilities of normal delivery. If any emergency arises beforehand, you need to go for caesarean section

As of now, tell your wife to continue all the drugs and also do regular follow ups and scans to prevent any untoward complications.


Baby born after 28 weeks is viable.

Hope this helps you.

Thank you
