The relationship of the placenta to the amniotic cavity and fetus is shown here in the case of a term infant whose mother died in an accident. The placental disk is at the left, with the maternal surface that would be attached to the uterus at the decidual plate. The baby is seen inside the amniotic cavity. The amniotic fluid in this cavity allows for fetal movement and protects the baby.
