in the womb, which is the uterus. The cervix is the opening (os) to the uterus (womb). The placenta is an organ attached to the uternine wall, and connected to the baby via the umbilical cord.

Placenta is what feeds a baby as it is growing. Mothers give birth to the placenta after the baby has been born.
