Placenta is the organ that attaches itself to the uterus during the earliest stages of pregnancy. It provides blood, oxygen, and nourishment to the fetus while also allowing a way for waste to exit the baby's blood as well.


The main function of placenta in pregnancy isto supply your baby with sufficient nourishment. Generally it isfound to evaluate around one-sixth of your newborn's weight. Every minute during the pregnancy,approximately about 550 ml of blood gets pushed into the uterus toreplace enough nutrients...
from the chorion frondosum of the fetus and the decidua basalis of the mother
During pregnancy two harmones are secreted by placent.once placenta established it starts secreting progestrone harmone which maitains the pregnancy.Another haromne placental lectogen harmone is secreted which combined with LTH stimulates mammary development in prepration for lactation.
  Hask Placenta is made from sheep placenta. It is a protein diet for damaged hair and promotes strong, healthy hair.

Don't worry about it.That's natures way.
Yes, when rats are born they each come attached to their own placenta, which the mother then licks off and eats. There is one placenta for each baby rat, but if the mother rat doesn't expel the placenta it can rot inside her and make her sick even to the point of death. Baby rats are connected to...
Oh my god, 212 months pregnant? That is definitely too long. A normal pregnancy lasts only 9 months. 212 months, that is more than 17 years!!! Incredible!!!
Umbilical cord avulsion means that the cord has been separated from the placenta proper. Usually this occurs when there is too much tension imparted on the cord during the delivery of the placenta, also known as the third stage of labor. Management would require manual extraction of the placenta, an...
In the UK, a 15 y o pregnant girl is unlikely to be locked up.
to check infections and bleeding
The placenta acts as the lungs for the fetus.
the umbilical cord
For nine months the placenta feeds and nourishes the fetus while also disposing of toxic waste.
  No. Neither should a vaginal ultrasound be done. There is a significant risk of damaging the placenta.
it provides the baby with oxygen and nutrients and passes carbon dioxide back to the mother.
you will die and never have sex again
  == Answer ==   no, if you are wondering that for drugs, they will test you and the baby
No, only mammals which develop inside the mother's womb depend on a  placenta for their growth, and therefore have an umbilical cord.  (There is no umbilical cord involved in the development of those  few mammals who lay eggs or whose babies develop in the mother's  pouch.) Since birds are...
During pregnancy, the placenta attaches itself to the uterus to provide the developing fetus blood, oxygen, and nourishment as well as removing waste from your baby. The placenta may implant itself at a low position in the uterus, during the early stages of pregnancy. Normally, as the uterus begins...
It is a normal case and no need to worry for that. Anterior means the placenta is attached on the front side in the uterus.
The fetus is attached to the placenta by the umbilical cord.
You try to burp the baby. Either put the baby directly under your shoulder with their head on the top of your shoulder, and gently pat their back. You can also sit down and lay your child, stomach side down, on your thighs. Make sure their head is supported but their legs can hang down. When patting...

Extremely dangerous. I miracously survived one in o6 along w my son. You should have a team of specialists present at birth. Ready to repair any organ that it may have grown into and possibly you might need blood transfusions for hemoraging complications so look into family donating blood. Contact...
yes, the placenta is edible.
it permits the passage of nutrients and oxygen from the mother to the fetus.
2 to 4 cm away from the baby's belly as if too short and the cord is needed to help resusitate baby later, the umbilical vein couldn't be used.

  Placenta spuria--placental tissue that has no connection tot he main placenta.     Placenta succenturiate--additional lobe of placental tissue only slightly connected to the main placenta.     neither of these is an indication for a cesarian. However, the delivering doctor needs...
The placenta is connected to the fetus and that is then receiving oxygen from the mother, and both lungs and placenta helps you breathe.
Trophoblast cells. Form about 2 weeks into the pregnancy
Third step placental period from after baby is born until the placenta comes out.
When umbilical cord isnt attached to the placenta is the baby ok
  The placenta, or after birth, or third stage of labor, can be as big as a piece of fruit (when healthy) and weigh over one pound (again, when healthy). It does not particularly hurt to deliver the placenta during the third stage of labor, especially in comparison to delivering a baby.
Small microbes like illnesses can get through it and smoking, drugs and alcohol can get through as well.
An umbilical cord is made out of the same stuff that a baby is made  out of, it contains blood vessels.
The mesoderm makes up the placenta.
Gestational diabetes affects the mother only after the baby's body has been formed. So no birth defects, but babies may develop low blood glucose and breathing difficulty.   The placenta supports the baby as it grows. Hormones from the placenta help the baby develop. But these hormones also block...
Yes it is poisonous if you it and swallow it.
  During normal pregnancies, particularly during the later half of it, it is suggested that women do not lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk or anything to large to be carried comfortably (and not awkwardly). With placenta previa, this weight should be even less than a gallon of milk,...
The placenta was form from decidua basalis.
The Placenta provides nutrients, oxygen, helps protect your baby from infections, and also discards of waste produced by your baby.
it means that a baby is devloping   cool
My twin sister and I were born 9/11/41. The Dr. Traywick told my mother that we would be identical, because we were on a Y-shaped cord or connected cord. He had delivered hundreds of babies in that little west Texas town.But we were not identical, as anyone could see even in baby pictures. She looks...
This is because their is no receptor to facilitate IgM on the placenta. IgM is too big is a common, and wrong misconception.
  If you have a placenta that is in the lower part of the uterus, there is a serious risk of haemorrhage either before labour or, most certainly, during it. It is a risk both to a mother's life and the baby's if not medically managed. However, placentas that appear low at this stage of...
  == Answer ==   Fraternal (non-identical) do not share the same placenta as they are two babies formed from two eggs and two sperm. If they implant close together they may appear to be one placenta, but they are not.   Identical twins formed from one egg and one sperm may split at any...
Answer . \nI have never heard of that, but it sounds bad. You should either go to the emergency room, or make a doctor's appointment if you are not too worried.. Answer . Abruptio (ab-RUP-she-oh) placentae (pla-SEN-tee), also called placental abruption, occurs when the placenta breaks away from...
The endometrium begins to form shortly after the fertilized egg (blastocyst) implants into the uterine wall (endometrium). This typically occurs 3-4 days after fertilization. After implantation, the endometrium is called the Decidua, and basalis is the portion directly under the blastocyst. The...
  Respiration, circulation, nutrition, and the provision of hormones of the endocrime system are functions of the placenta during embryo development and the growth of the fetus.
The placenta averages 22 cm (9 inch) in length and 2-2.5 cm (0.8-1 inch) in thickness (greatest thickness at the center and become thinner peripherally). It typically weighs approximately 500 grams (1 lb). It has a dark reddish-blue or maroon color.
One function of the placenta is to permit passage of nutrients and  oxygen from the mother to the baby
The placenta gives nutrition to the fetus, it does not give organs.
  == Answer ==   Some placentas are attached to the front of the uterus. When that happens the fetal movement may be muffled because the baby is kicking at the placenta instead of kicking at your tummy.
  You probably won't see anything. Try to avoid a D&C unless Dr says it is a 'missed miscarriage'. Some of my early miscarriages at 5-6 weeks were re-absorbed or may be went down the toilet (horrible I know, I tied to avoid that). Once I found what might have been an embryo, grey, with 2...
The placenta is a organ that is conacted to the umbilical cord, sothat the pacenta can give the baby oxygen and nurients.
has villi to increase surface area   tin walls so less distance for substances to diffuse   good blood supply maintaning an concentration gradient
it increases the risk for post partum hemorrhage and infection   The person who delivers the placenta should ensure it is complete so this doesn't happen. an operation may be required to remove the remaining placenta.
Diagnosis of placental abruption relies heavily on the patient's report of her symptoms and a physical examination performed by a health care provider.
The diagnosis can be confirmed by performing an ultrasound examination. This will allow the location of the placenta to be evaluated.
If you define a placenta as a structure with which a mother may transfer nutrients to its young during their development up to the moment of free-living birth, then yes. For example the common smooth-hound (Mustelus mustelus), a small shark found in the UK is viviparous (gives birth to young instead...
women do to fertalize the baby
No. The womb is your uterus. The placenta is what attaches the baby to the umbilical chord and provides the baby with nutrients. During labor the female will expel the placenta after the baby is delivered.
  The placenta is not sewn to the uterus.   A fairly common practice in the case of someone who is unable to keep a baby inside as it grows because they dialate easily is call a Circlage. During this procedure, the cervix is sewn together to offer support. However, if there are any signs of...
