Placenta previa is a condition in which the placenta covers all or part of the cervix, and is the same one Tori Spelling dealt with when she was expecting her fourth child: son Finn Davey, now 4½.
“I stumbled to the bathroom, dizzy from losing so much blood. When I got there, I thought, ‘This is it,’ ” the actress told PEOPLE in October 2012 of a related episode she encountered at 20 weeks pregnant. “There was so much blood I thought, ‘I’m dying. Not just [losing] the baby, but I’m dying.’ ”

Mom of two Kim Kardashian West also had an issue with her placenta while pregnant with both her children, Saint and North: placenta accreta, which occurs when blood vessels and other parts of the placenta grow too deeply into the uterine wall and remain attached.
“She had a really tough birth because of the issues with her placenta,” a source told PEOPLE of the reality star following Saint’s arrival in December 2015, when a doctor had to scrape out her placenta by hand.
