Are there different types of low-lying placenta?
There are three main types of low-lying placenta. They are classified by their position in the uterus: 1) Low-lying placenta praevia - the placenta is located close to the cervical opening without covering it. 2) Partial or marginal placenta praevia - the placenta partially blocks the cervical opening. 3) Complete placenta praevia - the placenta covers and blocks the cervical opening.
