The Placenta

The placenta is the site of nutrient, gas, and waste exchange

Secretes hormones that maintain pregnancy

Trophoblast cells release human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) which signals the corpus luteum to enlarge and produce progesterone

The placenta develops from the embryonic chorion and maternal uterine tissue

Chorionic villi are formed from the chorion, and project into the endometrium of the uterus

The umbilical cord, containing two umbilical arteries and one umbilical vein connects the embryo and the placenta
