Well, here is the thing with Placenta Previa. It means the placenta is covering the cervix, and they didn't used to diagnosis it until you were due. So my first reaction was hell yeah it is dangerous. Then i remembered that with ultrasound these stupid doctors are diagnosing it at 20 weeks. Well if you are 20 weeks it means NOTHING. It shouldn't even be considered placenta previa and should not be "diagnosed" it is just a low lying placenta in mid pregnancy and reason for a follow up u/s at 36-38 weeks. But if you are due it is a big deal and if it is fulling covering the cervix, it means a c-section. It is still a big deal even if you were planning to have a c-section because it make the doctor's job more complicated and the surgery more risky.
