    Good morning. Let your mind be at rest. Since she is on her way to the hospital, I pray for her safe delivery. Bleeding close to delivery can be due to a heavy show- which is normal. It might also be due to a condition called placenta previa which occurs when the placenta is blocking the pathway that the baby is expected to pass through. It can also be as a result of abruptio placentae - when the placenta separates before the baby comes out. Let's hope everything goes well. Put your mind at rest. I wish a safe delivery. I will be expecting the good news soon.
