Expert Answer:

  • Placenta is a special tissue that provides food and oxygen to the foetus.

  • Here, the mother’s blood and fetal blood comes in contact with each other.
  • Nutrients and oxygen are taken by the foetus from the mother’s blood.
  • Foetus gives away waste products and carbon dioxide to mother’s blood for excretion.
