The fetal circulation is the circulatory system of a human fetus, often encompassing the entire fetoplacental circulation that also includes the umbilical cord and the blood vessels within the placenta that carry fetal blood.

It is a test for Alpha-fetoprotein. It is a test that can monitor a person's response to cancer therapy by measuring a specific blood protein level. It can also be a test for detecting birth defects in a developing fetus. Alpha-fetoprotein is produced by fetal tissue in unborn babies and also by tumors.
The placenta is an organ that connects the developing fetus to the uterine wall. The placenta supplies the fetus with oxygen and food, and allows fetal waste to be disposed via the maternal kidneys. The placenta develops from the same sperm and egg cells that form the fetus, and functions as a fetomaternal organ with two components, the fetal part (Chorion frondosum), and the maternal part (Decidua basalis).
