I'm 31wks pregnant with my 3rd child and lost a baby last year at 39 weeks due to placental abruption. All my births have been vaginal. Shall I opt for a Caesarean section this time? What are the chances of having another placenta abruption?

Placental abruption can be very serious both for mum and baby, and is a very sudden and traumatic complication of pregnancy. It doesn't tend to recur, however, nor is there any reason that we can see to suggest you should automatically have a Caesarean. Your doctors may suggest a slightly earlier vaginal delivery at 38 weeks or so.
