Fig. 55. Section of the uterus, illustrating the relation of an advanced fetus to the placenta and membranes


Before birth, the placenta is concave on its amniotic surface, its curvature corresponding to that of the uterus (Fig. 55).

Near the center is attached the umbilical cord, and at its margins the placenta is continuous with the decidua vera and the remains of the chorion Iseve and decidua capsularis. The amnion lines all the deciduae (Fig. 55).
