Where the Placenta Is Located?
An anterior placement of the placenta is relatively common and not a cause for concern. Most often, the placenta develops wherever the fertilized egg implants, and it can grow anywhere in the uterus. These are the technical names of the various general locations where placentas are found:
Anterior: The front of the uterus toward the front of your body and your stomach
Fundal: The top of the uterus
Lateral: The right or left side of the uterus
Low-lying: At the bottom of the uterus, sometimes covering the cervix
Posterior: The back of the uterus toward the back of your body and your spine
The placenta can also develop in between any of these areas such as toward the top and back, the top and side, or the bottom and front, etc.
