how does the embryo get nourishment inside the mother's body?
Asked by | 6th Sep, 2008, 01:23: PM
The fetus floats in amniotic fluid inside the amniotic sac. The fetus receives oxygen and nourishment from the mother's blood via the placenta, a disk-like structure that sticks to the inner lining of the uterus and connects to the fetus via the umbilical cord.
