Amniotic fluid

Amniotic Fluid

Amniotic fluid is the fluid that surrounds your baby in your uterus (womb)

Here’s what the fluid does:

•Cushions and protects your baby

•Keeps a steady temperature around your baby

•Helps your baby’s lungs grow and develop because your baby breathes in the fluid

•Helps your baby’s digestive system develop because your baby swallows the fluid

•Helps your baby’s muscles and bones develop because your baby can move around in the fluid

•Keeps the umbilical cord (the cord that carries food and oxygen from the placenta to your baby) from being squeezed


Placenta

Placenta

  • Tissue that is attached to the uterine wall, contains a rich network of blood vessels and is connected to the developing baby by the umbilical cord.

  • - Provides nourishment to your baby.

  • - Eliminates waste from your baby.

  • - Exchanges respiratory gasses with your baby, allowing it to breathe through you.

  • - Blocks some (but not all) harmful substances in your body from your baby.


Umbilical cord

Umbilical cord

  • The umbilical cord is the life-line that attaches the placenta to the fetus. The umbilical cord is made up of three blood vessels: two smaller arteries which carry blood to the placenta and a larger vein which returns blood to the fetus. It can grow to be 60 cm long, allowing the baby enough cord to safely move around without causing damage to the cord or the placenta.

  • After the baby is born, the cord is cut the remaining section will heal and form the baby’s belly button


Ultrasound

  • A process that uses sound waves to create video and still images of a fetus inside the uterus

  • The procedure is used to check fetal position and movement measure the fetus heart rate

  • It can reveal the fetus gender and test for down syndrome or spina bifida
