Uterine AVM during pregnancy


I’m currently 19 weeks pregnant with my 4th and had some minor bleeding early on in my pregnancy. They discovered I have an AVM directly below my placenta. So far the baby seems to be doing well and I have not experienced any more bleeding.

Has anyone been through a similar experience and had a successful outcome? My drs are just keeping an eye on it with serial ultrasounds and I’m not sure they know what to expect either. Are there any specialists in Canada that would have more experience with something like this? I’m seeing a MFM specialist in Regina, SK
