I'm 28 weeks pregnant and I had vaginal bleeding. Scans show that baby's growing normally, the cervix is closed and the placenta is high-what's causing the bleeding?

The commonest causes of bleeding are placenta praevia (the placenta is situated low in the womb near the cervix), placental abruption (a part of the placenta separating from the wall of the womb), cervical erosion or the cervix dilating. It sounds as if most of these causes have been excluded and more often than not there is no obvious cause for the bleeding found. Unless the bleeding becomes recurrent, the outlook for your pregnancy should be good.
