The incidence of placenta accreta has been increasing along with the number of cesarean section (C-section) taken. The complication of c-section in placenta accreta cases compromises of massive bleeding hence maternal death. A multidisciplinary team approach is required in managing placenta accreta. Importantly, placenta accreta with complete placenta previa. Here we present a case of a woman with placenta accreta along with a complete placenta previa and two previous cesarean section who complained per vaginal bleeding on 31 weeks of gestation. Placenta Accreta Index (PAI) was 5,5. An elective c-section followed by hysterectomy on 32 weeks of pregnancy was done and a baby weighing of 1920 grams was delivered. Prompt and early surgical decision needs to be made to ensure maternal and fetal survival.
