Can The Baby Be Wrapped By The Placenta?
I want to know if the baby can be wrapped/eat by ari-ARI
Hi Waty Wau Wau,
The placenta or placenta is a layer that attaches to the uterus as a means to provide blood supply from mother to baby. This blood intake contains important nutrients, both oxygen and other substances for the fetus to survive and develop.
The placenta generally attaches to a part of the uterus, but does not wrap around the fetus. The part that covers the fetus is the amniotic membrane. The amniotic membrane and the amniotic fluid in it function as a place for the fetus to develop and minimize the fetus from outside influences such as shocks, collisions, and so on.
It is impossible for the placenta to eat the baby. Possible abnormalities in the placenta include:
Placenta previa, which is when the placenta covers the birth canal. Placental abruption, i.e. the placenta is shed/detached from the uterine wall before delivery. Placenta accreta, increta and percreta, which is when the placenta grows too deep in the uterine wall, uterine muscles, and passes through the uterine wall. Placental insufficiency, ie when the placenta is not functioning properly/damaged so that the distribution of nutrients is not optimal. Retention of the placenta, which is a placenta that is not delivered after 30 minutes to one hour of delivery.
