Name the organ which connects placenta to embryo.


The umbilical cord connects the embryo with the placenta.


Placenta refers to the temporary vascular organ found in mammals, which attaches the fetus to the uterus of the mother during pregnancy. The placenta is exclusive to mammals.

  • The umbilical cord connects the fetus to the placenta, facilitating the transfer of materials.
  • The placenta is usually attached at the top, bottom, side, front or back of the uterus.
  • In extreme cases, the placenta gets attached to the lower part of the uterus resulting in a condition known as placenta previa.
