Where does a baby get its food from in the mothers womb?
The developing baby (the fetus) gets its nutrition and oxygen from the mother through the umbilical chord; this chord is connected to the baby in the place of the belly button, where the nutrition enters the baby's intestines so that it is absorbed into their blood. The other end is attached to the placenta; it transfers all the nutrition and oxygen the baby needs from the mother.
