Low lying placenta is a pregnancy complication in which the placenta gets implanted in the lower part of the uterus near to or covering the cervix.

A low-lying placenta not necessarily covers the internal OS (the upper end of the cervix that opens into the uterus) of the cervix and therefore, does not block the baby from passing through the cervix. For that reason, a vaginal birth is still possible even though the placenta is located close to the cervix.

It is also seen in many instances, a low-lying placenta corrects their own position as the pregnancy progresses. However, if the low-lying placenta moves and blocks the cervix, the placenta will be termed a placenta previa.
